Ergashoy's story

Ergashoy is an upbeat and very kind woman, 55 years of age. She is married and has one son, who works in Russia as a construction worker. Ergashoy’s dream has always been for her son to receive an education and become a professional. But for the time being, due to lack of finances in the family, he was forced to go to Russia as a migrant worker. He receives a good salary and tries to send some money to his parents every month. Ergashoy herself does not remain idle, either: she is a seamstress working out of her home. She sews traditional national outfits, blankets etc. She also receives a decent income from this work. Ergashoy’s husband works as an engineering technician at a car park and earns very little, but this income too supplements the family budget. All of their income is spent on everyday needs. Yet they dream of renovating the house they live in. The house’s condition is unfavorable. Due to frequent rains, the roof is badly worn out and leaks during rain. This is why Ergashoy and her husband decided to renovate their house. And so Ergashoy has applied to Arvand in order to receive a loan to buy construction material and renovate her home. She thanks Arvand in advance for its support.
