Subhon's story

Subhon lives in Isfara, he's married, forty years old, and has one child. He was not able to receive a higher education since his family has faced financial hardship since he was young. He followed in the footsteps of his father. As a boy, he helped his dad with baking and selling cakes at market. In 1991, he began baking independently. Initially, it was very difficult since he needed capital. He was advised by friends to take a loan out with Arvand. He has big plans for the future. Because he wants his child to have a higher education he tries to do everything he needs to to make this goal happen. Subhon is very grateful for Arvand since the organization helps those with financial difficulties carry out their plans.
