A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase livestock.

Asatillo's story

Asatillo is married, a father, and lives in a rural area. When his wife was meant to start her higher education, she was not able to due to financial limitations. When the opportunity finally materialized, she felt uncomfortable returning to school since she was older than the other students. So now she raises their wonderful children and helps her husband. Asatillo has worked with livestock for many years. He buys the animals, fattens and slaughters them, and sells at a local market. He treats his livestock well and isn't stingy with his efforts or his feed. From the time he started his business, and continuing on to the present day, he has had many customers for his meat. Besides the meat, he also sells dairy products (milk, yogurt, sour cream). He receives a good income from his livestock. Asatillo has turned to Arvand for a loan. With these funds, he plans to buy livestock that will increase his income. He is grateful to Arvand for the assistance and the big role Arvand plays in his life.
