Yusupjon's story

Yusupjon lives in the J. Rumy district. He is 46 years old, married and has eight children. As the children grow, so do the family's expenses. Right now the family's only source of income is what the oldest son sends home from his work abroad. Those funds don't cover the family's expenses though. Yusupjon decided to start an income generating family business, and he chose animal husbandry. He intends to buy and sell cattle. His wife and children will help. Yusupjon knows how to raise livestock because they already have a family milk cow. Yusupjon's starting capital will be 125 USD, and they also have a 10x4 meter shed in the yard and 100 bundles of hay. With the goal of beginning the business, Yusupjon is asking for a loan to buy 4 bull calves and their feed. He wants to use the income earned to pay for his son's wedding.
