Zarob's story

Zarob lives in the city of Kulob in the south of Tajikistan. He is 45 years old, married, and has a son and a daughter who attend school. The family shares their home with one of Zarob's brothers and two nephews. For the past year, Zarob has been buying and reselling cattle. He purchases calves at the livestock market that serves Kulob and nearby villages, fattens the animals for 30 days, and then resells them at a profit. Zarob's wife helps her husband in this occupation, and both of them are also engaged in farming. Zarob is taking this loan to buy cattle for subsequent resale.
