A loan of $725 helped to buy children's and men's clothing to expand her business.


Malika's story

Malika is 34 years old and lives in the countryside with her family. She is a very diligent and hard-working woman. Malika is married, and has a son and a daughter. They all help one another and live a happy life together. Malika wanted to go to college and become a designer after she finished school, but she doesn't come from a wealthy family, and her parents couldn't afford to finance her education. Now she sells children's and men's clothing at a local market. She has turned to Arvand for the financial resources necessary to expand her business.
