A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase livestock.


Mahbuba's story

Mahbuba is a 40-year-old woman. She is married and has 3 children. For over 12 years, Mahbuba and her husband have been keeping livestock, and presently have around 7 sheep and goats. Mahbuba keeps the animals at her home. She is an expert in the intricacies of her business and knows well when to purchase and when to sell livestock. In addition, the family has a garden where they grow fruit and vegetables. In spring and summer, Mahbuba's husband sells their harvest at the market. Their eldest son is presently working in Russia and, if possible, sends money to his parents every month. The younger children currently attend school. Mahbuba plans to use this loan to purchase livestock and, having fattened it during the winter, to sell it at a good price in the spring. She thanks MDO Arvand in advance for their financial support.
