A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase cattle.


Seydilda's story

Seydilda D. is a 54-year-old farmer and has three children. He graduated from agricultural college and worked as a tractor-driver in his local area. In order to support his family and find a means of subsistence, he decided to engage in cattle breeding and land cultivating with perennial herbs, which serve as a concentrate of forage for his cattle. His wife helps him develop their family business and sells their milk yield to the local diary factory.

Seydilda wants to take a loan of 70,000 KGS to buy milk cows, which will allow him to increase the milk yield. With the revenues, he plans to buy his own tractor in order to provide services in harvest gathering to farmers.
