Manana is a 63-year-old, pensioned woman from the village of Tskarostavi. She lives with her husband and sister. The family's significant source of income is from monthly assistance. They don't have any other activity, except having some chickens.

Manana finds it hard to live with the financial difficulties and she has a great desire to generate income from agricultural activity. Most people get income from this activity in this area and Manana thinks it will be lucrative for her, too.

With the requested money, she will purchase pigs, breed them, and after they grow, she will sell them at a good price. It will somehow improve the family's living conditions and Manana will more easily meet the daily costs. She will be grateful for the help, allowing her to do her own bit for the family's welfare.

Manana awaits your support.
