Mina M. has been working in agriculture since getting married. She and her husband buy and sell sheep in order to cover the family’s most urgent needs. Mina and her husband are very responsible parents, and they work very hard in agriculture and sheep farming so that they can give their one dear son the opportunity to finish school – an opportunity they never had due to poor finances. A good education is the most important inheritance Mina and her husband can give to their son. Mina now finds herself with more expenses than income, and she would like a loan in order to increase their production. Mina and her family are waiting for your your help.
