Sobir's story

Sobir is a caring family man. He is 39 years old. He has three sons and two daughters who are aged from four to 14. His wife does not work; she looks after the children and the home. Sobir as head of the family supports the family on his own. He works part-time as an artisan, offering services in apartment repair. This is seasonal work and with the onset of cold weather he will have nearly no orders and his family is left without a source of income. Sobir planned for a long time and finally decided to start a new business. He was always interested in raising livestock. After all, this is a lucrative business and does not require much effort. In the yard of his home, Sobir has built a shed for keeping cattle and stocked it with hay and cattle feed. Now, in order to purchase himself cattle, he does not have the financial means and therefore he requested a loan. With the sum of the loan, Sobir wants to buy young bulls and calves, and to start his own business fattening and selling cattle. He is awaiting support.
