Rafail's story

Rafail is 61 years old. He and his wife live in the Spitamen area. His wife collects a pension and he works at Novselmash - a plant that manufactures fittings. At the same time they rent a 1 acre plot of land where they grow corn. Rafail has children but they live apart from him. His daughter who lives nearby helps Rafail and his wife. Right now, Rafail would like to start a new business to fatten and sell cattle. He will raise livestock at his daughter's home. His daughter is not opposed at all and helps her father in many ways. Rafail needs a loan to purchase 4 heads of cattle. He plans to fatten them over a period of 90 days and to resell them at the local market. He has a car for transport. He is asking for a loan to start his business. He looks forward to your support!
