A loan of $1,125 helped to buy cows.

Birame's story

Birame is a married man and the father of three children. Two of his children are attending elementary school in their village. Birame farms during the rainy season and also fattens cows during the dry season. These two businesses allow him to make the income he needs to support his family and meet his own needs.

Birame is requesting a loan for 550,000 francs to buy some cows that he will fatten and then re-sell in 8 months' time. His goal is to build a sturdy pen so that he can better protect his animals and expand his business.
