Shuhrat's story

Shuhrat is a 46 years old and he lives in a village with his wife and four children. Neither Shuhrat or his wife have a higher education and they both are involved in raising their children. In his free time, Shuhrat helps his wife with their crops: apricots, wheat and corn. From a very young age, Shuhrat helped his family grow various crops. A short time later, he rented a plot of land on which he could sow crops. At first it was very difficult since he didn't have anyone to help him but his wife. Shuhrat found from some acquaintances that Arvand give loans. He turned to Arvand and received his first loan in 2011. Shuhrat has a good credit history. This year, he plans to take out a loan to buy mineral fertilizer to use in his wheat and apricot fields. He is very grateful to Arvand for their support of poor people and he wishes every success for this organization.
