Abulfat H. is 45 years old and lives with his wife and their six children.
Abulfat has been breeding cattle for more than 20 years and he is trying to improve the breed in order to increase his prices. He invests time and money in the feed and medicines that the animals require. He enjoys this work, especially getting milk from his cows, which his wife sells in local markets.
Abulfat keeps going thanks to the help and enthusiasm of his children, who, along with his wife, help him care for the animals. Abulfat needs a loan of 1,600 AZN to buy more calves to expand his business. With your help, this will be possible.
