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


A loan helped to buy a small herd of calves for fattening, good quality feed, and veterinary medicines.


Medhat's story

Medhat is 34 years old, married, and has two children. His spouse is a housewife. He is the breadwinner of his family and also supports his aging parents who live with him in the same house. Medhat has a cattle-fattening business and has successfully repaid three prior loans. The funds were used to increase his production of dairy products. With his profits, he bought a small herd of calves for fattening.

Medhat wants to expand his business even more, so he is requesting a new loan to buy another small herd of calves for fattening, good quality feed, and veterinary medicines to strengthen the immunity of the herd. He says that his wife and his elderly mother milk the cows for producing dairy products. He sells these products at the local markets and also obtains good prices for his fattened cattle.

Medhat also hopes to continue providing for his children’s education since this business is his only source of income.
