Mastura's story

Mastura works as a nurse a health center in the Khonabad municipality. She works from morning to night every day, five days per week and spends weekends working on her home garden. Mastura is 37 years old, married and has 3 children. Her husband works at a collective farm. In addition to their jobs, the husband and wife are involved in livestock feeding. They currently own 2 cows and 1 bull. Cattle feeding business is the primary income source for the family because milk is either used in the family’s diet or sold to neighbors, and bulls, once grown, are sold at a market. Mastura wants to purchase one more bull in addition to the cattle they own at home. This is why she requested this loan from Kiva.
