Malik's story

Malik was born in 1959. He is married and has six children. His wife is a homemaker, but helps her husband with the business. Malik shears goats and sells the wool. His wife and daughters-in-law shear Angora goats at the beginning of spring, then treat the wool and make yarn. They sell the yarn over the course of a year at the city markets. Malik also works as a handyman at a construction site. He has been partnering with us since 2010. He obtained his first loan in February to purchase goats and sheep. His sons work in Russia and send money home for living expenses. Malik's daughters-in-law also help with the livestock when he leaves to go to work. He is requesting this loan to purchase sheep and goats.
