A loan helped to purchase calves to increase his income and pay for sending his kids to school.


Bajram's story

Bajram is 56 years old and has five children. In order to earn a living, he is involved in agricultural work. He typically keeps calves to raise and then sells them at a higher price. He has been involved in this business for some time based on family tradition. He also has land where he plants corn and wheat. His wife help him to work the land and also care for the farm.

At this time, he is requesting a loan to purchase calves to increase his income and pay for sending his kids to school. Bajram knows that by almost doubling his farm, he will be able to increase the profits that he will make in sales, and thereby, improve the standard of living for his family. While he is the main source of income, both of his businesses generate only enough to provide for the family's basic needs.

With the long and cold winter at hand, he is not able to generate money from his land and is relying on the sales of the calves to help more. He looks forward to expanding his farm and improving his living conditions.
