Abdulla is 54-years-old, married, and father of three children. In September, he will make the wedding ceremony for his two sons. Abdulla is a very hard worker who does a lot to earn a living. By profession he is a teacher. Now he is retired and prepares the school-children for university.
For many years, Abdulla has worked in an agricultural business. He used to buy and sell cows, buying them cheap and then turning them over at a higher price to make a profit. Now he has managed to build and keep a stable for the cows, and it is for this reason that Abdulla is requesting a loan for the first time in order to purchase cattle. He also claims that he has been the only one who has financially supported his family.
