A loan of $225 helped to buy cattle.


Fotima's story

Fotima has approached MDO Arvand for a loan to increase her herd of cattle. She keeps several head of livestock at home, and this is the main livelihood in the region where she lives. Fattening cattle is her sole source of income. This type of work is currently in demand, which is why her family is working hard at it, so they can support themselves in this way. They have a large family and there is not enough employment for everyone in the village where they live. Many villagers have to go to the Russian Federation to earn money as migrant workers, but Fotima does not want to send any of her family to a foreign country so she is trying to provide for them herself. For this reason, Fotima wants to get a loan from Arvand to buy several head of cattle to continue to develop her business.
