A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase livestock.

Nemat's story

Nemat lives in a rural area, far from the city. He has a big fifteen year experience in the field of animal husbandry. His father was engaged in livestock breeding and Nemat since childhood helped his father.

He had one sheep for which he had to provide care. As Nemat himself says, "I was very fond of that little gray sheep. Then that was a child's enthusiasm. Now this is my income and life earnings." He grew up and followed in his father's footsteps. He started his activities with two heads of sheep. Initially, it was not easy for him, especially in the winter when the whole earth was covered with snow and he had to spend more money to feed the livestock. But years of experience proved themselves out and Nemat began to find ways to address the challenges and to better promote his business.

Now, he has more than 50 head of sheep. His wife and three children are also involved in the business. Nemat is also a master bricklayer and plasterer. He works part-time for accommodation, his children's education and daily expenses.

Due to the season, he cannot sell his sheep now as prices have fallen. Nemat needs additional resources to continue caring for his livestock and to acquire new livestock. To this end, he appealed to MDO Arvand for a loan. He plans to use the loan to buy livestock. He is grateful to Arvand for the support and their huge rule in his life.
