A loan of $1,075 helped to buy cattle.


Matluba's story

Matluba is 40 years old, she is married and has 3 children. Matluba's husband worked as an electrician, Matluba also worked but circumstances were such that they both lost their jobs. Her husband decided to raise livestock as this brings in at least a small income. Back then the children were small and there was enough money, now when the children grew up expenditures also increased and they try to work as hard as they can. Raising livestock is the only source of income for the family.

They also dream of building their own house, because they live with their parents and it is very crowded. Matluba does not want to sell the livestock because they can use the profits from the livestock to slowly start building their house. She plans to buy more livestock for this purpose, so that her husband can resell it for a higher price after some time. Matluba and her husband are hoping for loan help from Arvand to buy livestock.
