Mahmudhuja's story

Mahmudhuja lives in a rural village called Isfara. He's thirty years old, married and has three children. He was not able to receive a higher education since his family has dealt with financial hardship since his childhood. After he finished school, he began working with an acquaintance who worked baking cakes. Initially, he worked a supplier, buying flour, oil, and other necessary ingredients for cakes. His mentor saw that Mahmudhuja had a desire work together so he invited him to do so. Mahmudhuja didn't refuse the offer. He was very happy to be able to increase his family's income. After some time working together, Mahmudhuja rented a building from which to sell their goods. This was difficult since he was required to use his initial capital on rent. However, he was not discouraged and tried to work from morning until late into the night. Today, his cakes are in high demand. Mahmudhuja has turned to Arvand for a loan in order to buy more of the raw ingredients he needs to increase his production. He is grateful to Arvand for the financial support and understanding.
