Farzona's story

Farzona is an inhabitant of the Nosiri Khusrav region. She is a married woman of 27 years, and has one son. At the moment, Farzona lives with her parents, because her husband a few years ago went to work abroad and did not return. Farzona with the support of her parents is raising her son alone. In order not to be a burden on her parents, but rather to become an independent woman Farzona decided to engage in her own work. She chose the livestock business. Near their home is a barn. Farzona plans to buy and sell cattle. She will be assisted in this work by her father and brother. Farzona requested a loan to buy livestock.
