G. Lafiz is 38 years old, married and has three children. He has a secondary education and operates an animal husbandry business. He has a small farm where he breeds calves. Because he does not have a specialized education, animal husbandry is the only source of income for his family. Lafiz buys calves on the market at a low price, feeds them, and then resells them at a higher price.

Lafiz is applying for a loan because he needs money to buy more cattle. He is requesting 2500 Somoni (750 USD) and plans to repay the loan within 12 months.
