Temirbek T. is a 41-year-old farmer. He has a very tight-knit family with four children of school age. In order to support his family, Temirbek decided to start his own business in cattle breeding. Owing to his persistent, hardworking personality, Temirbek, with starting capital of 5000 KGS, managed to multiply his investments and now earns about 3000 KGS in a month at his farm with four cows, five goats and four horses.
Temirbek plans to use the loan of 100000 KGS to expand his farm by buying four bull-calves for fattening and reselling. With the revenues from the loan, he plans to pay for the education of his children and broaden his business by purchasing more cattle.
