A loan of $475 helped to buy cattle to increase her herd.


Donohon's story

Donohon is a cheerful woman of 65 who lives in a rural area. She is married and has three children. She is retired and works from home in animal husbandry. She has gradually been increasing her herd. Her husband helps her with this work. He often visits the cattle markets and buys young calves, then after they have fattened them for several months, they resell them for a higher price.

Currently, since livestock prices have fallen, Donohon wants to buy several young calves for fattening. She decided to approach Arvand with this problem, for financial support. She wants to use the loan amount to buy several calves.
