Mohammad's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a head of cattle for developing his business.

Mohammad's story

Mohammad is a 24-year-old married man who has recently had a baby. He is financially responsible for his very sick and elderly mother. He previously asked for a loan for his small grocery store business but unfortunately the project was not a success because of the high market prices.

He is not giving up and decided to open another business which he and all of his family has good experience in. This is a small cattle fattening business where he is fattening cattle to produce milk and making dairy products such as cheeses and butter for selling in local markets and to neighbors.

He is working very hard to afford all the needs of his family. He hopes to provide his sister with new clothes for her marriage. He said that this time he believes that this business will succeed because of the experience he has. He asks for a loan to buy a head of cattle to develop his business.
