Gulbahor B. is 46 years old. She’s married with 4 children. The difficult circumstances and hardships in her life made her recognize the value of work from a very young age. For about 10 years she has been purchasing young cattle in the local market, fattening and then selling them.

Gulbahor is a very hard-working woman, and her diligence is incredible. She works with a strength worthy of immense admiration. She has always looked for a way to be an important protagonist by providing extra income to her home. Gulbahor wakes up early every morning to feed her cows and bulls, with the goal of selling them at the best price in the local market. She started this occupation because of the recommendation and teaching of her beloved mother.

Thanks to this activity she is supporting her children and providing them with education. Gulbahor wants to keep educating them because she hopes that they’ll reach the goals that they have laid out for themselves. With this purpose in mind, she is requesting a loan of 2500 Somoni (750 USD) with a term of 12 months to buy calves in order to expand her business. Let’s support this brave woman who has a lot of determination and strength to live. Your generosity can change their lives.
