This is Arjet, a 23-year-old hard working man and a married father of a year-old child. Arjet is running a livestock activity that he started about two years ago. Until then, he worked as a herdsman in a village, but it is very difficult to get there by vehicle because the road is unpaved and bumpy. This would be his first loan.

“While I was watching others peoples’ livestock, I thought why not watch my own? So I bought some then to start off and I want to add some more at the moment. Since the start, I have been making goat cheese and selling it at the market in addition to baby goats. I like the whole activity and I really want to expand it,” said Arjet.
