Abdurauf is a 28 year-old young man, who is married and has three children. He is involved in dekhan farming of growing and selling peanuts and also in fattening up and selling livestock. He primarily buys sheep and goats. Being knowledgeable in livestock breeds and having learnt from his friends about loans, Abdurauf also decided to obtain a loan and expand his animal husbandry business by buying a few heads of young goats. His residence is located near mountains, and this is why livestock spends entire days at a pasture in the mountains, and a shepherd brings them back in the evenings.

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.
