Natavan is a responsible and loving mother who is always thinking of the well-being and security of her three children. She is dedicated to raising cattle and sheep. Her husband is unemployed and cattle breeding is the only one source of income for her family.
Natavan has 5 years of experience in the cattle breeding business. She usually purchases calves and lambs, then fattens them and resells them in the livestock bazaar. Her monthly income is about 150 USD. Natavan's hope is to purchase more animals to expand her business. To reach this goal, she is requesting a loan of 1000 AZN.
