A loan of $650 helped to buy dried fruits.


Zebo's story

Zebo is a 50 year old woman. She lives in the city of Konibodom. She was married, but unfortunately her husband passed away several years ago. Zebo has two children. She faces great hardship as she bears all the responsibility for her children and herself, but she does not get discouraged, and she works tirelessly. Zebo has a higher education, but does not work in her area of expertise since she cannot support her children on one salary. She works in sales of dried fruit, a business she has been in for the past 15 years. She buys goods in another city. This is her sole source of income. Her children help her when they are not in school. On the advice of friends, Zebo decided to apply for a loan, and turned to Arvand. She plans to use the loan to buy dried fruit from a different city and sell it at a higher price. She very much hopes that this loan will help her expand her business and adequately support her children.
