Majan is thirty nine years old and married. He lives in a minority community, and is the father of two children, ages two and four.

For quite some time, he has been working in an agricultural business. He grows wheat and corn on his land, and then sells the products in his area in order to earn a living. He started at the beginning with only a small tractor, and now he has upgraded to a new tractor.

Majan is asking for a loan to pay the bills for his new tractor. This loan will help him to expand his work and to earn more income. He is hoping in the future to secure a life and provide a better education for his children.

Majan is very grateful to all Kiva lenders!
