Ikrom is a 33-year-old resident of the J.Rumy region of Tajikistan. He's the happy father of 5 children (4 sons and a daughter); he and his wife married young, so their oldest son is already 15, while their youngest son, Umedchon, is 2. Ikrom loves his family more than anything and tries his best to provide for them. As the breadwinner in the family, he is obligated to provide his wife and children with food, education, and medical treatment.

Ikrom is currently working in a passport office in J.Rumy, but would like to start raising livestock to earn some extra money on the side. He feels he needs to borrow $3000 in addition to what he's already saved in order to get started, which is really not a whole lot of money when you consider how much it costs to buy livestock. Ikrom understands that it won't be easy to be a successful livestock farmer, but remains undaunted by potential hardships, and will move forward with his plans, come what may.
