A loan of $1,450 helped to buy fodder for the animals.


Agron's story

Agron’s livestock business came to an unwanted and painful end about two years ago when all six of his dairy cows along with the little baby calves passed away. He never found out whether it was someone who did this purposely to him, or if the cows ate something poisoned while they were grazing or were bitten by snakes.

“The thing is that it hurt me a lot; I had gotten used to the animals and to my daily routine of taking care of them and distributing the milk and selling other dairy produce to the local market. Financially, I was destroyed as well. I remember that early morning when I went to the stable as usually to feed them and take them out, when all of a sudden, I see all of them on the ground. At first, I wanted to believe that they were sleeping, yet right way I knew that something terrible had happen. I literally couldn’t stop my tears. It took me and my wife some time to get used to the idea and then we started slowly investing again on cows,” said Agron.

With this loan, Agron wants to buy some fodder for the animals.
