Afqan K. is 54 years old, married and has four children. He lives with his entire family, as well as his parents, on a one-hectare property where he breeds sheep and sells them for meat production. He started his sheep breeding business in 1995 as there was no other financial source. In order to expand his business, he is requesting a loan of $1200 USD, which will be used to purchase 20 sheep to help to sell more sheep during the winter period and improve his living conditions. Afqan and his family appreciate your help!
