Egam's story

Egam is an elderly but active man of the age of 50 years. He is married and has six children. In his youth he received education in carpentry and for a long time he worked as a carpenter. But when he got a family and children, this type of work became very difficult for him, as the work was a physical exertion for him.

After some time, Egam and his wife started their own business, which does not require hard physical work and brings a good and stable income. To this day Egam works with fattening cattle. He has a small plot of land next to his home. Currently Egam has four sheep and goats. He not only raises and sells livestock, but also sells milk from it. Every morning his wife and children sell 10 liters of milk to the neighbors and other customers.

Egam's eldest son is in Russia as a migrant worker and every month, when possible, he sends financial support to his parents. Egam wants his children to have a good income and not be in need of anything. He would like to expand his business, in order to receive a larger income. Therefore he would like to get a loan from Arvand, to increase the number of livestock and the size of his income. After that he would like to expand his business and increase the quality of life for his family.
