A loan of $325 helped to buy cattle.

Hotamaly's story

This is Hotamaly's second loan in our organization. He's a very honest, dedicated and hardworking person. He was born in a country area which is well known for its agrarian industries. His sons work in Russia, however, they don't have stable employment so Hotamaly can't rely on them fully for support. Therefore, he makes a living by growing crops ad raising animals, areas in which he has significant experience. Mainly, he grows wheat and barley. His wife helps him run his business.

He uses profits from the crops to purchase cattle for cheap on the market, after which his wife fattens the cattle for a period of time and then they sell it for a high price. Hotamaly spends his income on his household in order to improve his living conditions.

This year, he planted two hectares of land with barley, but was unable to reap a good harvest due to poor weather. Therefore, he approached our organization requesting a loan to buy some cattle and expand his animal raising business. He feeds his cattle with fodder from his fields.
Hotamaly hopes for your help.
