Mahmaraim's story

Mahmaraim is 51 years old. He is from the J. Rumy district of Tajikistan. He has worked for many years on a piece of land where he has grown vegetables and cultivated fruit trees. Working from the land has not been easy, but he has coped well with all obligations.

Mahmarain enjoys working in agriculture, but he feels that he needs to do more. He would like to combine crop production with animal husbandry, and wants to buy some livestok to create his own barnyard. However, he does not have enough savings to realize his project and this is the reason why he is taking a loan.

His plan is to buy three head of cattle every month (cows and calves) and resell them for a profit at the cattle market 30 days later, after having fattened them. He already has his mini business plan. He is waiting for your support, in order to start this new activity.
