Shavkat's story

Shavkat is a hardworking and very active 30 year-old man. He is married, but does not yet have children. But Shavkat and his wife love children very much and want to have a large family. Shavkat started his own business in order to earn a living and have a regular income. It has now been two years since he got involved in growing potatoes. He has a small plot of land, where he grows his harvest. He gathers a good potato harvest every season, then sells the potatoes at a local market and earns a good income for his family. Dekhan farming is one of the profitable businesses in the locale where he lives. Many men in the area are involved in this business. In order to stay competitive, Shavkat wants to increase his business by planting the best variety of potatoes. He needs money for this. Now Shavkat came to Arvand and wants to obtain a loan to purchase potato seeds in order to expand his business. He hopes very much for a positive outcome and thanks Arvand for the support in advance.
