Bybyoryfa's story

Bybyoryfa is a 46-year-old married woman with children. She has been working in animal husbandry for 10 years. She looks after her cows, cleans up after them, feeds them and milks them. At the same time, she works with her family on their farm where they grow crops such as corn, cotton, onions and alfalfa for animal feed.

Without a doubt, such hard work is not without its rewards. Bybyoryfa is purposeful and hardworking and works confidently toward future plans. At the moment, she is preparing to increase her head count of cattle to sell and with this goal in mind, she is looking for a loan. She wants to use the loan to buy a pair of cattle as well as feed. She really needs this loan.
