Badri runs an agricultural business and breeds four milk cows, two calves and a pig. Badri’s wife Madona produces cheese to sell with the received milk. The couple also sells nuts, maize and laurel leaves which are grown on their piece of land. In addition, Badri has a tractor and serves local farmers on tilling and planting seasons in return for a service fee.
Badri and Madona work hard all day long, but their earnings are modest for the purposes of saving and improving their standard of living.
Badri is requesting a start-up loan to purchase a mini-bus. He will use it as a school bus and transport local children to school, which is located very far from the village. The children go to school with difficulty, and it takes them much time. The school administration will pay for the service, and Badri will generate income.
Badri and his villagers hope for your support.
