Sharaf's story

Sharaf has been working in an ambulance service as head nurse for 36 years. Her husband is retired. They have been living together for more than 30 years. They have two beautiful children.

One of their sons is leaving for Russia to find work. Her son is unmarried and Sharaf and her husband want to get him married this year. Her son is similarly planning to earn for his wedding in Russia and at the end of the year to hold his wedding. But Sharaf can not pay all the costs of air travel and for that she has applied for a loan from Arvand.
