A loan of $2,200 helped to buy four bulls and repair an old barn for keeping livestock there.


Shodi's story

Shodi is 55 years old. He lives with his family in a small town Vahdat. Shodi is an elderly person and can no longer do hard labor. He works as a contractor and his income is small and unstable. Shodi decided to get involved in animal husbandry because it does not require hard labor and yields a good profit. Shodi has a 7x5 meter barn in the yard of his home. He wants to use it as a cowshed for livestock. But the barn is very old and needs to be repaired slightly. Shodi has savings in the amount of 600 dollars. But this is a small sum to start this business. He requested a loan. Shodi will use the loan and his savings to buy four heads of bulls and make repairs in the barn for keeping livestock there. The loan will help Shodi to open his own profitable business, which will allow him to stop doing hard work, detrimental to his health, to provide for his family. He is awaiting support with hope.
