A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase livestock feed.

Gulom's story

Gulom lives in an agricultural area, in a village far away from the city. He is married and is raising three children. He has twelve years of experience in raising livestock. His father raised livestock and Gulom helped his father since his childhood. They had one calf that he had to take care of. He grew up and followed in his father's footsteps. He started his business with two sheep. At first he had a hard time, especially in wintertime he had to spend more for livestock feed. But over time experience proved valuable and Gulom started finding ways to overcome barriers and ways to better expand his business. Today he has more than 50 heads of livestock. His wife and three children also take part in the business. Due to the season he does not want to sell his cows right now, because their prices fell. Gulom needs additional resources to buy livestock feed. With this goal he turned to MDO Arvand for a loan. He plans to use the loan to buy livestock feed.
