Muhammad's story

Muhammad H. is 45 and the father of six children. He lives with his family in Shewa district. The household renturned from Pakistan after living 15 years as refugees there. Mr. H. is teaching in a public school in his village. He has enrolled his sons in school. His eldest son is 18 and now is the 10th grade.

Even though Mr. H. is teaching, he is farming in his land part time. He has a half acre of land near his house, and grows various vegetables in different seasons. Right now he grows corn in his lands.

Mr. H. likes teaching more than farming, but he can’t solve his financial problems with his $50 a month salary. He had complaints that they could not buy fruit for a week for his family; likewise he cannot provide stationery or other essential goods for his sons easily.

However, Mr. H. has not lost hope. He wants to remedy his situation by taking out a 50,000 Afghanis loan (US$ 1075) from AFSG. Muhammad H. believes that by purchasing some livestock with this loan, he can solve 50% of his problems; he will sell milk and yogurt in the bazaar and in his village.P>

Mr. H. dreams of one day providing all facilities for his sons’ education so that he can present educated individuals for society. Also, he is already thankful to the kind lenders.
