A loan of $850 helped to buy a cow.

Shuhrat's story

Shuhrat is a young family man; he has children and works together with his wife, Holiskhon, to support the family. Shuhrat's wife used to work outside the city limits, but because Shuhrat's health did not allow him to come with his wife, he remained at home and watched after the children. Shuhrat's profession is in high demand in his village; he is a welder and makes metal goods to-order and for sale. He used his savings to buy several heads of small livestock a few years ago and has been consistently taking this livestock to a pasture since then and using this income to add to the family's budget. He used a loan to buy one bull, and the earning from cattle also turned out to be good. Now, Shuhrat plans to buy another cow and fatten it up until he has large expenses because he had already sold his livestock several times and covered his expenses for family needs.
