Patma is a young hardworking woman and also a loving mother. She is married and has five children. Her husband is currently working in the Russian federation while she raises and fattens livestock. She has a large family, and she finds it very difficult to raise her children by herself, but she is not giving up and she does everything to ensure that her children are not lacking anything. Her children also help her. For example, she milks her cow and the children sell the milk to their neighbors. They make a small income doing this.

Patma buys and sells livestock by herself. Every two months, she takes some livestock to the market, sells it, and then buys other young calves right away. This is her only business, and she is trying to expand her activity.

Patma plans to use her loan to buy a few more head of cattle to increase her herd. She thanks the microfinance institution Arvand in advance for its help and support.

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.
