Murod's story

Murod is 51 and a resident of the J. Rumy region. He works on the water canal and has a wife and four children. Murod has decided to work on his own family business so that he can earn more money, as his current salary does not cover his family's needs. He is preparing to start a business fattening and selling big-horned cattle, and will be dividing his time between this business and his main job with the help of his wife and children. Murod's starting capital amounts to 670 Tajik somoni, and he is requesting a loan to buy four steers and calves. Murod plans to buy about four head of cattle every month, and after 30 days of feeding will sell them at the local cattle market for a profitable price. The revenue he receives will be used to put on his son's wedding.
