Salomat's story

Salomat is a 50 year-old woman, who has been working with Arvand since 2002. At the beginning of her entrepreneurial activity, she sold women's undergarments and had a small business turnover. The selection of goods was also limited. Salomat's husband works as a cook at a cafeteria, and his entire income gets used for family expenses. Also, one of the client's sons works in Russia and sends them money for living expenses every month. Salomat has been increasing her good turnover year after year with the help of the loans and used the resulting profits to marry off her daughter and repair her house. Over the nine years of credit history, Salomat has not once violated the terms of the organization. Over this time, she changed her place of business and today leases a container at the large clothing market, "Somon," and her goods turnover increased several fold. And also their social and family condition increased and improved. Salomat plans use her new loan to purchase seasonal merchandise.
