Atamjon's story

Atamjon lives in a rural area, far from the city of Kishlak. He was born in 1965. He has extensive experience in animal husbandry. His father raised livestock and Atamjon helped him from a young age. Now it is his livelihood; he has grown up and followed in his father's footsteps. He began his business with five head of sheep. It wasn't easy at first, especially in winter. But with years of experience he came into his own and found his way to methods and decisions to improve his work. Today he has over five head of cattle, and recently bought a female cow. His wife and five children also help. In addition to animal husbandry Atamjon also works as a contract laborer to earn more money for his children's education and daily expenses. Because of the season he cannot currently sell his animals, as the price has fallen. Atamjon needs additional capital for further feeding and to purchase new animals. With this goal he came to Arvand for a loan. He is planning to use the loan to buy livestock and feed. He is grateful to Arvand for their support and the huge role they play in his life.
