Rahmon lives in the rural area, in a village far away from town. Rahmon works in construction and house renovation; he also has some experience raising livestock. He launched his livestock business by buying a single cow and developing this business further. The cow produced milk, which Rahmon sold to buy feed. At first things were hard for him, especially during wintertime, when the ground would be covered with snow and he would have to spend more on feed. But, as time went by, he gained experience, and started finding solutions and means to manage his business better. At present he has over 30 heads of cattle. His wife and five children also help out in this business. Rahmon needs additional means to buy more cattle. This is why he applied to MDO Arvand for a loan. He plans to use this loan to buy cattle for growing his business further.

Рахмон живет в сельской местности, в далёком от города селе. Рахмон занимается строительством и ремонтом домов, а также он имеет небольшой опыт в сфере животноводство. Он начал бизнес по откорму скота с одной коровы и постепенно развивал этот бизнес. Эта корова давала молоко, которое Рахмон продавал и на эти деньги он покупал корм. Поначалу ему было нелегко, особенно в зимнее время, когда вся земля была покрыта снегом и приходилось тратить больше средств на корм скота. Но годами опыт доказывал своё и Рахмон стал находить пути решения препятствий и способы для лучшего продвижения своего дела. Теперь на сегодня он имеет более 30 голов крупно рогатого скота. Его жена и пятеро детей также помогают ему в этом деле.
Рахмон нуждается в дополнительных средствах для приобретения новых скотов. С этой целью он обратился в МДО «Арванд» за кредитом. На полученный кредит планирует купить скот для дальнейшего развития своего бизнеса.

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.
