Qobiljon is a jack of all trades. He is as adept at dealing with people as he is with building materials. With the forest at his feet and a palette and paintbrush in his hands, he creates beauty. He is also very skilled in the field of animal husbandry, as he has 20 years of experience raising livestock. He is married and has 2 children. Because he himself was unable to get a good education when he was younger, he now wants his kids to grow up educated. To achieve his goal, he works very hard, sparing no effort to earn a living and to save for a brighter future for his children and family. He has several head of sheep. Every time he sells an adult sheep, he buys a young one, and in this way, he earns an income. Currently at this point in the season, he does not want to sell his sheep since the prices for livestock have fallen slightly. In order to realise his plans, Qobiljon is seeking a loan to buy livestock and feed. He is really hoping for assistance from Kiva and is thankful in advance for the support.

Кобилчон мастер на все руки. Он отлично ладит как с людьми, так и со стройматериалами. Леса под ногами, а шпатель и щетка с краской в руках – он творит красоту. Также Кобилчону легко даётся скотоводство, ведь у него двадцать лет опыта в этом деле. У него жена и двое детей. Как когда то сам не смог получить хорошее образование, теперь хочет, чтобы его дети выросли грамотными. Преследуя эти цели он работает не жалея сил, трудится и зарабатывает на жизнь и на хорошее будущее своих детей и семьи. Он имеет несколько голов баранов. Каждый раз продав одну большую взамен покупал маленького барана и так получал доход. На данный момент в связи с сезонностью не хочет продавать своих овец, так как цены на скот немного упали. Для осуществления своих планов он хочет получить кредит и приобрести корм и дополнительный скот. Кобилчон очень надеется на помощь со стороны «Кива» и заранее благодарит за содействие.

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.
