A loan of $350 helped to buy a cow.

Hanifa's story

Hanifa is an elderly woman with eight children, all of whom have their own households. She is currently retired together with her husband, Abdukodir, and they are raising their grandchildren. They also look after livestock, some of which they purchased with our loan and her savings, and were, thus, able to increase their livestock quantity. Besides livestock, the family is involved in growing agricultural crops on their land, which they sell at a market. After each loan, Hanifa improves her household conditions, helped her sons to build a house, married off her last son and held a family event. She is grateful to Arvand because we provide such services, and intends to continue working with us in the future.
