A loan of $600 helped purchase of a calf.

Musharifa's story

Musharifa M. lives in the Vakhdat region of Tajikistan. She is 49 years old, married and has three children. Musharifa has a technical degree in nursing and works at the local clinic, however her salary as a nurse is very small and she supplements her income by raising cattle. Musharifa purchases calves at the local market, feeds and fattens them for 45 days and then sells the animals at the same market for a higher price. The income from the cattle raising business considerably supplements her income and she supports her family with it. Musharifa wants to use this loan to finance the purchase of another calf. She is planning to pay back the loan in the next 10 months.
