A loan of $500 helped to buy cattle.


Zokir's story

Zokir and his family live high up in the mountains. He is in the business of raising cattle. This is Zokir's only business because, in the mountains, raising cattle is the only thing that works. He is the only breadwinner for his family. Zokir has a very difficult life, but he doesn't give up and he is trying to develop his business. He knows that if he loses heart, his family will not survive. So, Zokir tries to keep moving forward and to never despair. Once every two weeks, Zokir takes his cattle to the market where he sells them and he immediately buys calves. Right now, he has 10 head of cattle. He is planning to increase the size of his herd, but he does not have sufficient financial means to do so. Because of this, Zokir applied to MDO Arvand for financial support. Zokir wants to use his loan to buy one more calf, which he will raise and fatten for sale at an advantageous price this spring. He is reliant on MDO Arvand's support.
