Qudrat S. is 41 years old. He is married and has three children. Qudrat is a hard-working man who, while continuing to work another job, started his own business as a source of additional income.
Qudrat works as tractor driver, but his profession brings him money only once a year, in the autumn when it is harvest season. At all other times, he is unemployed, and this cycle motivated him to start his cattle breeding business in 2001. With time, he has increased his sales and now he needs assistance for investing in his business. The business has been going well and he would like it to continue to grow.
Qudrat applied for a loan of $1200 USD to buy four calves. With the profit from this loan, he wants to support his children with their education. He and his family thank you very much for the support that you offer them in continuing this business and helping them give their children a better quality of life.
