Zebiniso's story

Zebiniso is a conscientious, purposeful and hardworking woman. She was born in a village which has good conditions for livestock breeding and field crop cultivation. Zebiniso's family had a low income, and since childhood she helped her parents with cattle breeding and field crop cultivation. After having finished high school, Zebiniso got married to a livestock breeder, and helped her husband with livestock breeding and field crop cultivation. They mainly worked with livestock breeding, that is, they bought cattle at a low price at the market, fattened it for some time and resold it at a higher price. Due to unfavorable weather and climate, their business did not have positive results. Therefore, Zebiniso's husband went to the Russian Federation as a migrant worker. Zebiniso's family lived through this period only on the income from the livestock breeding. After this, Zebiniso started working with livestock breeding on her own. Zebiniso keeps cattle on fodder which she produces herself. For the income received from the business, Zebiniso would like to improve the living conditions of the family. Last year (in December 2012), Zebiniso's husband returned from Russia, and for some time he helped his wife in managing the cattle breeding business. Currently, Zebiniso's husband wants to travel to Russia for work again. Therefore, Zebiniso turned to Kiva and its partner IMON with an aim to receive a loan to purchase plane tickets for her husband. She would like to continue her business of cattle breeding. Zebiniso hopes for your charity and mercy.
