Sanovar's story

Sanovar is 46 years old and a mother of four children. She is a widow. To her great grief her husband became terminally ill three years ago and passed away. Sanovar was left without support and with four children to raise. It's very hard for her but she tires to keep up her spirits and assure that her children lack in nothing. Sanovar makes her living raising and selling cattle. She has twenty years of experience and her oldest son helps her with the animals. This is the only way Sanovar's family makes a living and she works without rest all day long. Sanovar is requesting this loan to purchase additional animals for her herd. She hopes to receive financial support from Kiva and is profoundly grateful for your generosity.
