Mehrafruz's story

Mehrafruz is a positive, kindhearted and responsible woman. She is 34 years old and has three wonderful children. Her husband is a good family man and kind father to his children. He works as a master mechanic in an automotive shop and has a decent salary. Before she married Mehrafruz attended medical college and has a degree in medical services. But after her children were born Mehrafruz left her profession to take care of the kids and the household. However, to earn more money for her family she has started a small business raising cattle. She is able to take care of her animals without leaving home and earns a good profit from livestock sales, which influences her family's the economic situation and quality of life. Currently Mehrafruz has a few heads of cattle but wants to expand her business and her profits. She also offers medical services in her home to her neighbors. She can administer urgent care, perform injections and insert IVs as well as other medical services. Savings from her businesses will allow her to improve the future of her children as Mehrafruz wants them to receive good education and good professions. Currently Mehrafruz is requesting a loan to purchase another cow for her herd which will allow her to expand. She is grateful in advance for your support!
