Matlub's story

Matlub is a cheerful man, age 52. He is married and has three children. He lives with his family in rural area. Two of his sons are grown and help him with his work. To have a stable income, Matlub works with livestock. His wife helps him and takes care of the cows while they are being fattened. She also sells the dairy products provided by the cows' milk. Matlub not only works with animals, he is also the head of a cooperative farm in his village. He receives good profits from his business. Now, the family's expenses are increasing since his sons have their own wives and children that need to be provided for. Together with his sons, Matlub wants to expand his business to increase their income enough to provide for the large family. He has turned to Arvand to take a loan to buy a few head of cattle. He hopes for a positive outcome and is grateful for Arvand's support.
