Qadir is a farmer devoted both to his work and to being the father of a family. He works hard raising his cattle, taking them out to graze in the early mornings. Raising cattle is not an easy task but his love for his family gives his work reason and meaning. His monthly profit is 350 USD. AqroInvest has been a fundamental part of Qadir´s business having provided loans which have been used to purchase calves and cow.
Currently, Qadir wants to improve his situation by increasing the number of his cattle which, in the long run, will provide a better income.
