Sherali helps his parents - just like his father, he transports passengers around town in his taxi. He did not pursue post-secondary studies as he is unable to pay for college education due to the family's difficult financial situation.

Sherali is taking this loan to repair his taxi and also to purchase winter tires and get his car ready for the winter season. He and his family thank MDO Arvand, LLC for their support 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.
