Forty-one-year-old Vali V. breeds sheep in the Bilasuvar region. He has more than 15 years of experience in sheep breeding. Selling the sheep for meat is the main source of income to support his wife and five children. Vali works as builder, but this work is not permanent and he works only if any local people build new houses or cafés, which happens very rarely. He is applying for $1000 US to purchase 15 sheep and fodder. This loan will help him to increase his income because summer is high season for weddings and the main meal at that event is mutton.Vali has a good chance to improve his life condition by selling sheep during this period.
