Tufajon is a very happy and energetic woman. All her life she has worked on a farm with cattle. Because of this, she has gained much experience fattening cows and bulls. For 20 years, she and her husband have worked fattening cattle because they know the ins and outs of caring for livestock. Her husband works as a security guard at a local farm but his salary isn't enough to live on. So each morning, Tufajon milks her cow and takes the milk to the city to sell. At the moment, this additional income is not enough for Tufajon's goals so she wants to take out of a loan to buy a more cattle to increase her income. She plans to use the money from selling the cattle to make repairs to her home since it needs it. She relies on Arvand's support to realize her dream.

About MDO Arvand

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.
