A loan of $1,550 helped a member to purchase livestock.


Baktabu's Group's story

Baktabu is the leader of this group. She is 35 and married to a farmer. Together with her husband, she is raising two sons. The first son is in school, and the second is not yet, since he is preschool age (under seven). In order to earn money to cover their daily needs, the family breeds livestock and resells it at a higher price after the animals have been fattened. Baktabu also sells milk and eggs to contribute additional money to the family budget. With money received from the loan, Baktabu wants to purchase more livestock for breeding. She dreams of purchasing a big house for the family in the future. --- Where Did This Loan Come From? ---
