Alimova Halchahon`s Group's story

Halchahon, 48, is the leader of this group. She is married and has 4 sons: the two elder ones help out with the family business and other two are students. Her husband works in their own mill which is located at their house. The other family income source is livestock breeding. At the present time they have 3 milk cows, 3 bulls, 1 calf, and 25 sheep. Our client mainly has been occupied with this business for the last 17 years. Notable that it all began with just 1 cow! The requested loan will be used to buy 1 milk cow, and she is going to sell the milk to the local population. Her annual income from livestock per month is approximately US$ 100. She has set a goal for herself in the near future: marry her sons and build houses for them.
