Mustagim K. is married with one son. He has a great passion for cattle breeding and has been in this business for 4 years together, with his wife. He would like to expand his business by adding another two calves to the three he has. This is because springtime and the wedding season are near and demand for meat will be very high soon. Mustagim is requesting 1200 USD in order to buy two calves and to feed them. With the additional income Mustagim will be better able to cater for his family's financial obligations, especially the education of his current and future children.
