Kamala is dedicated to improving her quality of life and does not scrimp on any efforts to achieve this. She is an Internally Displaced Person who has suffered from the war and has lost everything. Her responsibility as a mother to four children is her major driving force.
Kamala has been working for 8 years raising cattle. She usually buys small calves, raise them, and once every two months take them to the livestock bazaar to sell. Kamala has built a small stable in her house in order to do this. Her earnings are results of her long-term efforts to care for these animals. She is very enthusiastic about continuing to raise animals, since this will allow her to improve her conditions.
Kamala has asked for a loan of 1300 AZN to purchase more young cattle in order to expand her business. She promises to repay on time.
