As the family’s needs are growing day by day, Anahit wants to expand her agribusiness to more effectively cover her family’s costs. A loan of USD 3,000 will be a great support to this hard-working woman and her family, enabling her to purchase two steers, to buy some fodder for the livestock, to buy wheat seeds, and to pay for the harvesting services. Anahit and her family highly rely on the good will of the lenders and will be thankful to them for their support.
