Mirzorabi's story

Mirzorabi is 42 years old. He was born in Isfara region, close to the city. Due to his family's situation Mirzorabi was not able to attend college, despite getting good grades in school. He is farmer and works day and night in the field so that his can provide for his family. Mirzorabi is married and has four children. His eldest son is a migrant worker in Russia, but when he was still in school, his son always helped in the fields. He also did his best to help his mother and raise his younger siblings. After finishing high school Mirzorabi's son left for Russia to make a living and save enough money for his wedding.

Mirzorabi is now working the fields by himself and he gets very tired. But despite life's hardships he tries not to loose his spirit. Aside from farmland the family also owns a milk cow. Mirzorabi's wife takes care of her and milks her every day. She uses the dairy to makes various dairy products which she sells to her neighbors. The money from dairy sales is used to purchase necessary groceries for the family. Mirzorabi really wants to buy another milk cow so that he can improve the life of his family. Since his own savings are insufficient Mirzorabi has turned to "Arvand" for help. He learned about this organization from his neighbors. Mirzorabi is planning to use this loan to buy a milk cow and hopes for your help.
