A loan of $425 helped purchase a calf.

Ochahon's story

Ochahon works on a collective farm. This is field work season and she is constantly at work. She is 46 years old, is married and has 4 children. Her husband also works on the collective farm. Salaries are rarely paid with money and the pay is usually in kind – wheat, rice, etc. In order to sustain the family budget they also raise livestock at home. Their children help them. After buying calves over a period of several months they fatten them and after selling them, use the profits for family expenditures. This is a first loan for Ochahon and she plans to use it to purchase a small calf.
