A loan of $1,500 helped to buy cattle.

Dilshodbek's story

Dilshodbek is an active and hard-working young man. He lives in a rural area, far from the city. He was unable to get a post-secondary education because of family circumstances and difficult times. He began working in his childhood, helping his father who raised him according to the principle that "for a real man, even 40 professions are not enough." In this way, Dilshodbek became a jack-of-all-trades, able to earn a living in various occupations. He is currently selling building materials. He buys them from a supplier and sells them in his village for a profit. He also works in animal husbandry, mainly raising, fattening, and selling both cattle and smaller livestock. This is his main source of income which he uses to pay for his housing and living expenses, and to provide for his children's needs. He has a large family. He has a clever wife and 4 children. His parents and his brothers live with his family, and when he leaves to sell construction materials, his youngest brother and eldest son take over his other duties. Dilshodbek has to seize every opportunity to earn money so his family can live well today and not go hungry tomorrow. He has big plans for his children's futures. He wants them to learn a profession and to never want for anything in the future. To this end, he and his wife are saving up money and do not want to have to spend their little nest egg today. Dilshodbek plans to buy cattle and cattle feed for them, but he does not have enough cash on hand for this purchase. For this reason, he decided to approach MDO Arvand for a loan which he hopes will help him find a solution to his problems.
