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

A loan helped to buy a head of cattle to increase his business.

Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim is a young single man and the breadwinner for his family. He lives with his aging mother, two sisters and brother in the same house. He is a very ambitious young man who has started two livestock businesses to provide his mother and his siblings a dignified life; he could be a selfish young man and think only about himself, but no. He has previously requested two loans that helped him a lot to spend money on his mother's medicines and his siblings' needs.

Ibrahim raises cattle with goats and lambs to fatten them, then sells the small calves from the goats and cattle. He also sells dairy products to people in his village and to others outside of the village. He wants to keep going with his successful livestock business, and is requesting a loan to buy a head of cattle to increase his business.

This loan will allow Ibrahim to save money and be happy. He is very supportive of his family and they have encouraged him to save money for marriage.
