Faris's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy food for his cattle to overcome the winter conditions and support his family.

Faris's story

Faris is responsible for his family. He is from a town that is known for its cattle. He is a shepherd and supports his family from the income he makes from the herd. He is from a conflict zone and there isn't much funding for businesses. Although business is the way to solve a lot of the problems facing the communities there. A loan will help him buy food for his cattle. It is the winter and the herd depends on the food they get from the shepherd because there isn't any grazing.
