Askar's story

Askar is a 37-year old married man living with his family in the village of Sverdlov on the Shahrituz region. Askar has been blessed by five caring daughters who attend school and also help out with household duties. Askar is a building contractor. This work is seasonal, and sometimes it is hard to find customers. This is why Askar decided to launch a business in a different field. He has chosen to raise livestock, more specifically to buy and resell cattle, as this business brings in revenues year round. Askar has experience taking care of animals since his family already keeps cows. Askar is requesting a loan to buy six young bulls. He plans to buy six heads of cattle every month, fatten them for a month and then bring to the animal market in the region. Askar believes that his new business will be successful and bring in good revenues, and, as a result, the financial well-being of his family will improve. He is counting on your support.
