A loan of $200 helped to buy a cow.


Mirshakar's story

Mirshakar is a young man, age 23. He's not yet married, but plans to wed soon and is searching for a fiance. Mirshakar lives with his parents in a rural village. He helps his parents in every way, he loves them very much, respects them, and cares about their health. After finishing school, Mirshakar began helping neighboring shepherds, assisting while the cattle grazed in pastures. Now, it's been three years since Mirshakar started his own livestock business. He fattens and sells cattle and receives good profits from it. His parents help him with the business--his father buys and cells the animals, and his mother cares for them. Mirshakar also works as a secretary at a high school to earn additional income. Each month, he has to spend large amounts of money on medication for his parents to keep them in good health. Therefore, Mishakar wants to expand his business and increase his herd to increase his profits from sales. He currently has three cows and wants to buy a few more. With this goal in mind, he has turned to Arvand to take out a loan to buy the animals. He hopes for a positive outcom and is grateful to Arvand for the support.
