Umeda's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to buy two head of cattle and fodder for them.

Umeda's story

The 39-year-old Umeda is married, with four children. She has spent the last ten years of her life in livestock-rearing, taking care of her cows, cleaning up after them, feeding them, and milking them. At the same time, she and her family work in a small-scale operation that grows agricultural crops, in particular maize, cotton, onions, and also alfalfa for livestock fodder. This is demanding work but undoubtedly has its rewards. The goal-oriented, hard-working Umeda is well on track to deliver on her plans for the future.

At the present time, she is preparing to increase her headcount of animals for sale, and with that goal in mind has applied for a loan. With the money she receives, she wants to buy a couple of head of cattle and also to stock up on fodder for them. Umeda really needs this loan.
