Махбуба женщина 54 лет. Замужем. Мать двоих детей. Дети у неё уже взрослые и у каждого своя семья. Сама Махбуба домохозяйка. Как то Махбуба ходила к своим родственникам в гости и ей посоветовали заниматься скотоводчеством. Это предложение ей очень понравилось. Вот уже 8 лет как занимается откормом и продажей крупно-рогатого и мелко-рогатого скота. Махбуба откармливает КРС у себя дома. В этом деле она имеет большой опыт. Это приносит дополнительный доход к семейному бюджету. Для Махбубы это не только работа но и удовольствие, когда она ухаживает за животными. В данный момент Махбуба хочет купить КРС для откорма, но для этого у нее недостаточно денежных средств и она обратилась в организацию Арванд.
На полученный кредит Махбуба планирует купить скота. Она заранее благодарит Арванд за помощь и поддержку.

About MDO Arvand

MDO Arvand is one of the leading microfinance institutions in Tajikistan, offering small loans to entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses. This makes an enormous difference in a country, which is not only the poorest in Central Asia, but also home to a population where two-thirds live below the poverty line. Today, Tajikistan's economy literally depends on remittances being sent from family members working abroad in Russia because there are so few local job opportunities.

But Arvand loans have been able to make a difference and change lives. Read about some of the incredible success stories they have seen here in this Kiva blog post: Bringing hope to Tajikistan with Arvand -- one success story at a time.
