Hurshed was born 1981. He is married and has two children. Previously, he used to go to the Russian Federation and work there, but due to unknown circumstances, he was no longer able to work there. At home, his family kept livestock and grew various agricultural crops from spring to autumn. He also stopped going to Russia and began helping them to breed cattle. Currently, thanks to our support, Hurshed has seven cows. He plans to buy another pair of cows before spring after obtaining this loan. He will sell them after fattening them up or when the time comes to sell livestock, and will use the resulting profit to plant cucumbers, tomatoes and cabbage, and also melon crops on a leased plot of land. This is how Hurshed tries to have a regular income.

Хуршид 1981 года рождения, он женат, имеет 2 детей. Он раньше ездил в Российскую Федерацию и зарабатывал там, но по каким то обстоятельствам он не смог дальше там работать. Но дома его семья содержали скот и с весны по осень выращивали различные сельхоз продукты. Он также перестал ездить в Россию и начал помогать разводить коров. Сейчас благодаря нашей поддержки у него 7 коров. Получив у нас кредит, планирует прикупить до весны еще одну пару. А после откорма или когда придет время продавать скот, он их продаст и от полученной прибыли он на арендованном участке земли посадит огурцы, помидор и капусту, а позже бахчевую культуру. Так он старается, что бы у него постоянно был доход.

About MDO Arvand

MDO Arvand is one of the leading microfinance institutions in Tajikistan, offering small loans to entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses. This makes an enormous difference in a country, which is not only the poorest in Central Asia, but also home to a population where two-thirds live below the poverty line. Today, Tajikistan's economy literally depends on remittances being sent from family members working abroad in Russia because there are so few local job opportunities.

But Arvand loans have been able to make a difference and change lives. Read about some of the incredible success stories they have seen here in this Kiva blog post: Bringing hope to Tajikistan with Arvand -- one success story at a time.
