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


A loan helped to buy a head of cattle to increase his sales and improving his income so he can manage a good future for his children.


Shabaan's story

Shabaan is married and has three children. His wife is a housewife. He is also financially responsible for his mother, who lives with him in the same house. He has a small cattle fattening business, and he sells dairy products in the local market. He has asked for two loans before, and they were very useful for developing his business.

Shabaan wants to ask for a third loan to keep going in his successful business, which helps him a lot in saving money for his children's education. He asks for a loan to buy a head of cattle to increase his sales and improve his income so he can manage a good future for his children and create a better standard of living for his family who live in the same house.
