A loan of $275 helped to buy cattle.

Odil's story

Odil is married and 52 years old. He has a wife and three wonderful children. His wife is a homemaker who takes care of household chores. Their older son lives and works in the Russian Federation. Every month if possible, he sends money home to his parents. Since Odil had financial difficulties in his youth, he was not able to go to university and get an education. Now he can only engage in raising cattle. But this business has saved his family and provides a very good profit. Additionally, Odil moonlights as a security guard. He tries to do everything so that his children lack for nothing. From his friends Odil knew that the organization Arvand makes loans and he wrote to apply. He wants to buy cattle and increase his herd. He very much hopes that Arvand will help him and provide financial support.
