Munira is 42 years old. She sews traditional women's dresses. Her busy season is mainly from spring to autumn, when many weddings and other events take place. Munira was planning to buy furniture for her home using her savings. However, their amount was insufficient, and so she turned to MDO Arvand, LLC and learned about the financial support offered by Kiva. She is very grateful for the existence of such organizations that can offer help in a difficult time.

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.
