Bahodur's story

Bahodur is 47 years old and married. He is a farmer, raising wheat and vegetables, which he has been doing for 15 years. He chose this business because it is profitable and his fresh crop is in high demand. People use fresh vegetables every day and consider them healthy; many national dishes are made of vegetables. Bahodur sells his crop in the local market. His wife actively helps him to raise his crops. Bahodur is requesting a loan for 6,000 somoni, which he will use to buy seeds and fertilizers. As his products are in high demand, Bahodur wants to expand his business and produce more wheat and vegetables to cover market demand.
