A loan of $425 helped to buy livestock.


Ibodat's story

Ibodat and her husband breed small livestock. Her husband often travels to the Russian Federation for work and sends money home when he can. They have four daughters, and this is why Ibodat is saving for their dowries. With each sale of livestock, Ibodat and her husband buy younger livestock and buy whatever necessities for home. The money sent by her husband is only enough to support the family and to have small savings, and does not leave much for the business. Ibodat plans to increase livestock headcount by obtaining a new loan from "Arvand" and is very happy about this.
