Muhtaram lives in a rural area a long way from the city of Kishlak. She has an extensive 20 years of experience in animal husbandry, and knows all the details of the trade. Raising animals earns her income, which she uses on housing, her children's education, and living expenses. Muhtaram has 5 cows and 7 sheep. She milks one cow, which gives her fresh, delicious milk which also brings in income. Since income from livestock is seasonal, she also works as an assistant at a local restaurant, which covers the family's everyday expenses. Her son helps with with the animals, and often takes them to pasture. Muhtaram is planning to buy more cattle and also feed for them, but doesn't have enough money at hand. She decided to ask Arvand for a loan, which she hopes with help her meet her goals. She would like to thank the organization in advance for its support and trust in her.
