Ilyos's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped buy building materials such as cement, sand, etc. to build a new house.
Ilyos is a hardworking young man. He's a cattle farmer, and lives together with his wife and two children in a remote region of Tajikistan. He spent some time in Russia looking for work, but couldn't find anything suitable, so he came back to his homeland to continue farming as before. He has a lot of experience raising cattle; he's been at it for more than 10 years, typically buying cattle, fattening them for a few months, then selling them at a local market. His wife tends to their home in addition to helping Ilyos with the animals. For the past few years, Ilyos has been building a new home for his family, but hasn't been able to save enough money to finish it. He's seeking a loan of 5,000 somoni to buy cement, sand, and other building materials to complete the work on his home.
