A loan of $800 helped to buy a cow and livestock feed.


Rahila's story

Rahila is one of those women, who are involved in animal husbandry. She has been breeding cows and sheep, milking cows and selling milk for thirty years. She uses the business income to buy products, spend for her children by buying necessary things and paying for education. Rahila has seven children. All of them are already grown and help their mother with the household and business. The sons take cattle to a pasture, and daughter helps milk the cows. Rahila's husband is involved in dekhan farming. He has a land plot, where he grows cereal crops and vegetables. Rahila's family decided to buy a cow and livestock feed. At the present time, Rahila does not have the necessary amount of money in hand because she has not yet sold cows and spends the income from selling milk on ongoing expenses. Rahila came to MDO Arvand to obtain a loan. She very much hopes to receive the requested sum and be able to realize her plans. She is grateful in advance for the help and support.
