Rustamjon is 38 years old, married, and has 4 children. He has worked in animal husbandry all his life because he did not study in his younger years and does not have an education. His wife is a homemaker who raises the children, but in her free time, she helps her husband feed the cattle. They live in a mountainous region where raising cattle is a good way of making a living and brings in a nice income. As this is their only source of earnings, they are trying to develop their business. In order to feed his family and improve his livelihood, Rustamjon plans to increase his herd and will use this loan to purchase cattle. He has a big dream: he wants his children to study in good educational institutions, which is why he is striving to reach his goal. He is very happy that such organisations as Kiva exist, and that with their assistance, people who need financial support can realise their plans. Rustamjon thanks Kiva in advance.

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.
