Qurban K. is 56 years old. He is married and has 5 children. He is a very active man. Almost twenty years ago, he started his business of raising sheep. His family has a small herd of sheep and one cow. He usually sells sheep to local restaurants. This is his primary and stable activity. Also during harvest season, Qurban earns additional income as a tractor driver.

Despite these two jobs, since his business is still quite small, it doesn't generate enough income for the whole family.
Qurban would like to request a loan to expand his business and increase family income. He will use the profit generated by the business to repay the loan on time. With this purpose in mind, he is asking for a loan of 1000 USD in order to buy more lambs to sell when they are fully grown. The well-being of his family and his business are in your hands. Qurban and his children are sincerely grateful for your support.
