Zoir's story

Zoir is a young and good-natured 32 year old man. He is married and has three children. Zoir married early and didn't attend college to receive a professional degree. Instead he is making a living with the trade he learned from his father. Since childhood Zoir has helped his father in the fields. Now Zoir has a small farm where he grows cotton for sale. The cotton sales provide him and his family with a good income. Zoir owns a field of 1.5 hectares where he grows not only cotton but also onions and other crops. Zoir's wife also continue the trade she learned from her mother as a child. She raises livestock, and sells them, their meat and their milk at the market. Livestock business provides the family with additional income. Currently Zoir's family owns one cow, but he wants his wife to expand the herd so that the family will have a more stable source of income. That is why they have decided to purchase a few more animals for fattening and resale. Zoir has turned to Arvand for a loan with which he plans to buy more cattle. He hopes for a positive outcome on his loan request and is grateful in advance to everyone who will contribute.
