“I worked as a butcher in the local market. It was a battle every day, the means to an end to support my family. Having a farm was my dream, but I could not collect seed money to start a business, banks repeatedly refused me financing, because of my unemployed status,” recalls Manuchar Gotiashvili a farmer from Vartsikhe (near Kutaisi), husband, and father of two. After several failed attempts to find a job in the city or receive a bank loan, Manuchar approached a local micro-finance organization and received a loan to start his farm. Currently, he owns a successful business and is one of the largest suppliers of chicken, beef, and pork to the Kutaisi regional market.
