A loan of $1,275 helped to buy some cattle.


Patma's story

Patma is a young hardworking woman and also a loving mother. She is married and has five children. Her husband is currently working in the Russian federation while she raises and fattens livestock. She has a large family, and she finds it very difficult to raise her children by herself, but she is not giving up and she does everything to ensure that her children are not lacking anything. Her children also help her. For example, she milks her cow and the children sell the milk to their neighbors. They make a small income doing this. Patma buys and sells livestock by herself. Every two months, she takes some livestock to the market, sells it, and then buys other young calves right away. This is her only business, and she is trying to expand her activity. Patma plans to use her loan to buy a few more head of cattle to increase her herd. She thanks the microfinance institution Arvand in advance for its help and support.
