A loan of $950 helped to purchase coal.

Jamshed's story

Jamshed is a 28 year old man and he lives in a rural area. He is married and has two children. His wife takes care of the children full time. Jamshed doesn't have a higher education because there was never a possibility for him to study. He earns his living selling coal and he's been in business for 10 years. He started his business with ten bags of coal, but now he buys it up by the ton. There is a strong demand for coal right now because it's winter and many people heat their homes with it. This is his family's only source of income.

Since he never had the chance, Jamshed's dream is that his children will get higher educations and will work, not selling coal, but in respectable professions. Jamshed works day and night to make his dream a reality.

Jamshed is taking out this loan to buy coal so he can increase his sales. He is relying on MDO Arvand's support.
