A loan of $1,150 helped to buy cows that he will raise and sell after some time.

Ason's story

Ason is married, has two children and four dependents who are relatives. He works four hours a day, six days a week and is typically an agriculturalist. Ason wants a loan to buy more animals to keep on his farm to sell in the future, and he also sells animal products such as milk and manure.

Ason's clients are the nearby people who buy milk from his farm, to use in the production of milk products like ghee butter, and manure for their banana plantations, since most of his neighbors are farmers. He hopes that if he gets financial assistance he will start processing a large stock of composed manure, which he can sell to earn some income. He also intends to buy more dairy cows to produce more milk and milk products, because he also plans to buy milking machines in the near future.

Ason's challenges include animal diseases and the existence of some local breeds on his farm which do not yield much in terms of milk production. His wish is to get support from willing organizations so as to expand his farm. He also has plans of producing biogas.
