A loan of $1,275 helped to expand selection of warm seasonal clothing.

Rano's story

Rano has been a borrower with Arvand since 2002 and took out each one of her loans in order to increase her good turnover. At the beginning of her credit history, she was involved in small sales and sold men's and women's socks and undergarments, and her goods turnover amounted to only 120 dollars. Currently, her goods turnover increased and reached 1500 dollars. She changed her merchandise selection to men's athletic clothing and also changed her place of business. Rano brings in merchandise from Bishkek once per month. Her husband works as a salesperson at a rugs and carpet store. His monthly income is 700 somoni, and fully provides for the family. They have three children, one of whom studies at a university, and this is why Rano tries to use her profits to pay the agreed tuition for the education annually. Rano plans to use this loan to expand the selection of warm seasonal clothing.
