Gulnora wishes to start up a business in animal husbandry. She decided on this path because her husband does not earn enough income to adequately support the family. Therefore, she wishes to generate her own income with which to contribute to her family's finances. Her goal is to offer her four children a higher quality of life. When she starts up her animal husbandry venture, her husband will help her with the business.
In preparation for initiating her business, Gulnora took a course for women entrepreneurs called ‘To Get Ahead.’ She learned many business skills and earned a certificate upon completion of the course.
Gulnora is requesting a loan in the amount of 1,000 USD, which she will use to buy cattle to start up her new enterprise.
She is thankful for your support.
