Tursun is a positive and good-humored man. He is a successful entrepreneur, lives in a rural region and works fattening cattle in his village. He is married and has three children.

As his neighbors say, Tursun is successful, conscientious, honest, and dedicated. Tursun works a lot to provide consistent income for his family. For that reason, he runs his own business. Actually, he runs two businesses simultaneously. At first, he started with a small business fattening and reselling cattle. Now, he has grown his business so much that he raises his own cattle. Income from his business has been good, but he got the idea to grow his own crops to reduce spending by feeding this cattle home-grown feed.

By now, Tursun has a large harvest and a large amount of feed for cattle. Because of this, it is now necessary to increase the number of cattle. For this, Tursun applied for a loan from Arvand to buy a few additional cattle. The loan will help him grow his business and increase his family's income. Tursun is grateful to Arvand for their support.

Турсун позитивный и жизнерадостный мужчина. Он успешный предприниматель, живёт в сельской местности и занимается откармливанием крупно рогатого скота в своём посёлке. Он женат и имеет троих детей. Как его соседи говорят, Турсун является человеком успешным, добросовестным, честным и целеустремленным. Турсун очень много работает, чтобы иметь постоянный доход для своей семьи. Поэтому он ведёт свой собственный бизнес. Одновременно он даже ведёт два бизнеса. Поначалу он начинал с малого дела, он откармливал скот а потом их продавал. Сейчас он расширил настолько свой бизнес, что он уже выращивает крупный рогатый скот. Доход от этого бизнеса очень хороший. Но потом пришла идея выращивать сельхоз культуру, так он мог экономить расходы на откорм скота, используя свою выращенную сельхоз культуру. Но сейчас Турсун получил много урожая и имеет большое количество корма для крупного скота. Поэтому ему сейчас необходимо увеличить поголовье своего скота. Для этого Турсун обратился в Арванд, чтобы получить кредит на покупку несколько голов скота. Это поможет ему расширить свой бизнес и увеличить доход его семьи. Турсун заранее благодарит Арванд за поддержку.

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.
