A loan helped to buy more cattle for her project.

Salema's story

Salema is 36 years old and from Baniswef. She is married and has three children. Her husband is a part-time farmer, and she takes care of her aging mother and father-in-law. A few years ago, she started a cattle fattening project with a 5,000 EGP loan she requested from TADE and successfully repaid it on the due dates. Salema sells cattle along with cheese and butter in the local market. She requested a 10,000 EGP loan to buy more cattle to increase her sales and her monthly income for her family.
