A loan of $2,000 helped to buy a few steer and calves to start her own livestock business.

Sharafniso's story

Sharafniso is a good-hearted woman. She is 53 years old and lives in a village in Hamadoni with her husband and four children. Her husband works in a State Auto Inspectorate. Her children are grown and independent. Sharafniso has always been a housewife and has not worked anywhere. All these years she has been running their domestic lives and raising their children.

Now that her children are grown, she has a lot of free time. She wants to use this time to start her own business. Sharafniso loves to look after cattle--she has one dairy cow. She wants to start business fattening and selling livestock.

Sharafniso also wants to earn her own income and feel independent. She does not have the seed capital, and thus took a loan to buy a few steer and calves. Your support is important to her.
