Mamur is a man of the age of 63. He is married and has three children. His wife is a housewife. Mamur works with growing apricots. In the summer he collects apricots and dries them, and in the winter he sells these dry apricots at the market.

Mamur built a new house not long ago, and he would like to install a stove for winter heating. This winter was very hard for them as their old stove was out of order and could not be repaired. It was very cold. Not long ago, Mamur was told by his acquaintances that "Arvand" issues energy-saving stoves on credit through the product "green credit". He was very happy that he got such an opportunity to purchase such a stove, with which it is possible to both heat the house, prepare food and bake cakes. His wife was also very happy after she discovered this.

They decided to purchase this stove and turned to the organization "Arvand". Mamur hopes for support from "Arvand" and the realization of his plans.

Мамур мужчина в возрасте 63 лет. Женат и имеет троих детей. Жена домохозяйка. Сам Мамур занимается выращиванием абрикосов. Летом он собирает абрикос и сушит их а зимой продает эти сушеные абрикосы на рынке. Мамур недавно построил новый дом и он хочет установить печь для обогрева зимой. В этом году им пришлось очень тяжело так как их старая печь вышла из строя и не подлежит ремонту. Было очень холодно.
Недавно Мамур узнал от своих знакомых,что в Арванде выдают энергосберегающую печь в кредит по продукту "зеленый кредит". Он очень обрадовался,что ему выпала такая возможность приобрести такую печь которая и отапливает дом, на которой можно готовить еду и печь лепешки. Его жена тоже была очень рада узнав об этом. Они решили приобрести эту печь и обратились в организацию Арванд.
Мамур очень надеется на поддержку от Арванд и осуществление своих планов.

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.
