Surayo's story

Surayo is a woman of 45 years. She is a widow; unfortunately, she lost her husband a few years ago and was left alone with her daughter. Her daughter goes to college. Surayo herself works in one of the dining rooms in her village. It is very difficult for her but she does not give up and is trying to do everything so that her daughter will not need for anything. As Surayo says, "I live for my daughter."

Surayo earns very little, but she is also engaged in fattening cattle at her home. She gets a good profit from this business.

Surayo has long wanted to renovate the house and especially her daughter's room, and with this goal she turned to Arvand for a loan. Surayo plans to use the loan to buy construction materials and to update her daughter's bedroom.
