I wanted to buy a buffalo for my own which would cost about Rs.20, 000/-. During this time MED came my way. From the MED project I got a loan of Rs.10, 000/- with which I purchased a buffalo with a baby calf. Now I am earning a profit of Rs.150/- per day. My wife helps me in taking care of the buffalo. We thank you for the timely help given to us through the MED project. We are very happy. Thank you.

A Grand September
