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

A loan helped to purchase cattle to expand his animal husbandry business.

Dilshod's story

Dilshod is a 30-year-old cattle breeder and butcher living in the Panjakent region. In the yard of his home, he raises cattle. Dilshod now has only one cow and a calf on his farm and has been involved in buying and selling cattle for 6 years. His wife helps him and this is their family business.

Dilshod usually buys cattle from the local livestock market and then he and his wife fatten them for a month. After that, Dilshod sells the meat to local canteens and restaurants.

Dilshod has one child and loves his family very much. He always works hard so that his child will not want for anything. As his child grows, family expenses also increase. Dilshod plans to expand his business and is therefore asking for a loan to buy a pair of cattle.
