Bovochon is a young and energetic person, who is involved in a wholesale sale of watermelons and tomatoes. He brings the products from the city of Dushanbe on a truck and sells them wholesale to sellers at a market. Bovochon is married and has six children, and his wife is obviously a homemaker, who takes care of the children. He wants to use this loan to increase the volume of products that he brings in, which at this time would be watermelons and cantaloupes. And he wants to use the resulting profit to repair his home by installing plastic windows prior to the onset of a cold winter. The photograph shows Bovochon on the day of loan disbursement, but because he is a wholesaler, he could not be captured in front of his products due to his necessity to quickly depart to Dushanbe for products.

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.
