Marhabo is 40 years old, married, and has 4 children. She and her family live in the Shahrituz region in the south-western area of Tajikistan. Her husband works as a secretary in the Jamoat, which is the municipal administrative body of their village. Marhabo works as hard as her husband does to provide for the family. For the last 2 years, she has been raising cattle. She buys cows and calves, fattens them for several months, then sells them for a profit at the cattle market. Marhabo is now seeking a loan to purchase and sell cattle for the purpose of expanding her business.
