Gulbahor is a loving mother of 3 children. Due to adverse conditions in rural areas, she was unable to receive proper education and so is unemployed. In order to somehow improve her living conditions, she raises livestock at home. Gulbahor's husband has left with his brothers to find work in Russia and sends money every month, but this is only sufficient for bare necessities. Gulbahor has asked her brother to help her with the purchase and resale of livestock. She tends to the animals herself, while her children help when purchasing fodder. Gulbahor would like to increase the size of her herd, and so has turned to MDO Arvand, LLC for support.

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.
