Mehriniso lives in the countryside. She is 56 years old and has four children. She is smart and, in spite of her age, a hard working woman. When her husband passed away, she started working twice as hard and helped her children stand on their own feet. She is very well known and respected in her village. She has been fattening cattle for 12 years now, and she is familiar with all the challenges of this business. Because it is Spring, the price of cattle has come down. She would like to take out a loan to buy cattle, and later, having fattened them, will sell them at a good price. She is very grateful to Arvand, our organization.

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.
