Business Grants in Georgia Boost Tourism, Agriculture, and Promising Futures

Luso, a former ranger who is now the founder of Orbis Bude, welcomes visitors to Samshvilde village. She named her center “The Vulture’s Nest” after the many vultures that can be found in the canyon where she worked. Despite facing challenges such as starting a business, obtaining loans, and managing finances, Luso was able to secure funding and build everything at Orbis Bude. Meanwhile, Luka Avchaleli, an entrepreneur in the farm equipment industry, used his grant to invest in irrigation equipment. Economic grants are given to businesses in the agricultural sector and require recipients like Luso and Luka to contribute a minimum of 30 percent of the total project cost. Since its inception, 73 entrepreneurs across various business areas have been funded, with agri-business being particularly popular due to its profitability in areas where farmers lack access to modern machinery. This highlights the importance of these grants in providing opportunities for entrepreneurs and contributing to economic growth in the region.
