A loan of $1,500 helped a member to purchase livestock.

Mahabat's Group's story

Mahabat T. is a young woman of 31. With her spouse, she is raising two small children: Their son attends school and their daughter is a toddler.

Mahabat’s husband supports the family financially by reselling cattle in the local market. Two years ago, after receiving a profit from selling 2 goats, he began selling cattle. Over time, their earnings allowed them to increase the total number of animals they raise and improved the family's quality of life.

In order to increase the family's income, Mahabat and her husband are seeking to further develop their farming business. They plan to use the loan to purchase goats or sheep. Further plans include fattening the animals and reselling them at a higher price.
