Iamze is 43 years old and lives in the Khashuri district with her family. She is married and has a 19-year-old son. The family runs an agricultural business. In particular, Iamze owns a plot of land where maize, potatoes and haricots are grown. They also produce hay and alfalfa (Lucerne) for feeding the cattle. The family is involved in an animal husbandry business as well. They have two milking cows and a calf. Iamze produces cheese and sells it at the local open market. She is a hardworking woman who is responsible and very well-known in the area for her big heart and friendliness with others.
She requested a loan to purchase wheat seeds and cultivate land. After cultivating the land, she will be able to sow wheat and get an abundant harvest. Part of the harvested wheat will be used by the family, and the rest will be sold locally. Iamze will work hard, especially in spring and summer seasons, to get a good harvest. Another part of the loan will be used for purchasing calves, and after several months, the family will use oxen for carrying hay and harvested products. This will increase the family income and the profit will be reinvested in the family agricultural activities. Iamze awaits your help and kindness.
