Tuti's story

Tuti is a 47-year-old woman who lives in the countryside. She is married and has one child. She is very experienced in the field of rice-farming and rice-processing and she sells her production at a local market. Tuti started in this business 27 years ago. In the beginning she was mentored, but then she started to grow rice on her own. Her son currently helps her manage the business. Her life is very difficult because she is the only breadwinner in the family. Her husband is disabled and does not work. Her relatives help whenever they can. Thanks to her hardwork and optimism, Tuti has however managed to conquer all the challenges along her difficult path. After learning from some friends about the existence of MDO Arvand, Tuti decided to apply for a loan. She wants to use her loan to buy some rice-processing equipment. She expresses her gratitude to MDO Arvand for their assistance and for the huge impact they are having on her life.
