Pashke, age 48, has been in the livestock industry for the past 18 years. She tells us, "Livestock is our source of income and for most people who live in rural areas and we take great care of our animals."

Pashke and her husband have two children, both of whom attend school.

She is requesting a loan because she would like to add another milk cow with a calf to her livestock. She is grateful for your financial help.

Kindly note that Pashke dressed up for the picture because it is the practice of many rural borrowers in this area to do so. Although loan officers tell them that they can be photographed simply in their daily farming clothes, many clients prefer to dress more formally.
