A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a cow.

Inomjon's story

Inomchon lives in a rural village, not far from the city. He lives together with his mother. His father died a long time ago, when Inomchon was 8, leaving them alone. His mother raised the children by herself, which was very difficult. So now he is all grown up, and is already 36. He is married and has three children. He built his family on his own. Because of his circumstances, he could not go to college; his mother needed his help at home. But he graduated successfully from high school. He has worked on a collective farm since he was young, and has always loved animals. When he was still a young boy, he used to feed the cattle together with his father. Now whenever he feeds the cattle, he is reminded of his father. Right now Inomchon works at the collective farm and is also raising cattle. His capital has decreased because of family difficulties. Now it is his busy season, and he wants to increase his number of animals. For this he has turned to Arvand for a loan. Incomchon plans to use the loan to buy a cow and expand his business, which is very profitable.
