Buraima's Group's story

Buraima M., 65, is the leader of this group. She is one of the respectable women in her local community, and has forty years of experience in cattle breeding and dairy business. She has lived in her hometown of Aravan for sixty-five years and knows best of all the pleasant conditions for cattle breeding that this area provides. Many head of cattle have passed through her care.

Nowadays she owns a cow with a calf. It yields fresh milk every morning which she distributes to her regular customers. Buraima remembers how, being a young lady in 1971, she started with the purchase of her first cow, in which she put big hopes, and spent the last savings in her family budget. At that time, she and her husband were a young couple and her husband was farmer. Since that time, milk products bring in a significant portion of Buraima’s income.

Thanks to those financial assets, she raised three kids, helped with their employment and finished major repairing at her house. She invests her monthly income of about $215 back into her business. This time she needs some financial assistance in purchasing one more cow. In future she dreams of having a large fruit orchard.
