I was missing my family, I could not take it, so I came back.
I have not thought of leaving since then. I would not be able to handle it and I don’t want to leave my husband either. We want to spend our remaining lives together.
When I was pregnant, my husband and I went to Greece. I have a cousin there and he promised us a job, but my husband couldn’t manage it.
The conditions were very harsh, not like what was promised initially.
The shop has already become very important for our village, people always need things for their homes and now they don’t have to go far to get all that.
With IOM’s assistance we opened a greengrocer’s in Kutaisi market. I left Georgia because there were no jobs. I used to work in a silk industrial complex in the past, but everything closed and I was left without a job.
I left to provide for my child.
“Pirosmani” was a restaurant where I sang, but my desire to come back home was too strong.
I love people and I love communicating with them. I am also happy that they enjoy staying in my house.
I don’t want to leave my child anymore and lose the connection, although there might be better opportunities abroad.
Our boat started to sink, but we were close to the shore and we managed to get out before it filled with water. I was lucky.
