A loan of $1,050 helped to buy fruit.


Bikaromat's story

Bikaromat has turned to MDO Arvand for a loan so she can boost her fruit and vegetable vending business. The holiday season starts in December and she wants to increase capital and profits so she can buy new goods before New Year's. At present she has few customers and not much produce; she'll need to buy some more fruits and vegetables to stock up. Because of her age and health, Bikaromat isn't able to go for produce by herself, so her daughter helps her out by going for the produce herself, taking along the order from her mother. Now Bikaromat would like a loan which she plans to use to buy bananas, tangerines, apples and grapes. She is grateful for the financial support.
