Mahmasharif's story

Mahmasharif is an active person, who always tries to improve his family's living conditions. He is married and has three children, with whom he lives in the J. Rumy district. He is 46 years old. Mahmasharif's oldest son works at a chalk manufacturing plant. Mahmasharif's wife is involved in household work; they have one dairy cow in their household. Because raising cattle is a profitable business in a rural area, Mahmasharif decided to get involved precisely in this type of business. He plans to raise cows and calves for subsequent sale. He has a starting capital in the amount of 500 somoni (TJS) and also a 25x4 meter cowshed. Mahmasharif is requesting a loan in the amount of 2000 US dollars. He plans to buy six heads of cows and calves, and feed with the loan amount and his savings. He wants to use the resulting profit to hold a wedding for his daughter, who is ready to get married.
