A loan of $875 helped purchasing a bull and fodder.


Iskandar's story

Iskandar T. is only 19 years old, but is already the main bread-winner for his large family, which consists of his grandparents and two younger sisters.


Iskandar began raising cattle three years ago, after learning from his father what animals to breed, how to look after them and the best fodder to use. This training explains why Iskandar, despite his young age, is managing his business successfully and generating a stable income for his family.


Iskandar would like to buy a bull and fodder, and has requested a loan of $875 to make this possible. He will repay this sum in 12 months, and although this is his first loan, he promises to pay on time and wishes to thank everyone who trusts him and decides to lend him support.
