Abdukodir is a good-natured man, age 60. He is married and has five children. All his kids are already grown and they have their own families. Abdukodir lives with his wife in a small home in a rural village. Despite his age, he is full of energy and the desire to work to support his family. He is a farmer and works with livestock. He has a plot of land which is about 12 hectares. Of that, about eight hectares are rain fed and the rest is irrigated. On this land, he grows carrots, potatoes and grains. His wife helps him care for and raise the animals. Since they have a lot of land, he also has his cattle graze on it. Because the livestock business brings in a good income, Abdukodir wants to expand it and increase his herd. For this, he turned to Arvand for a loan to buy cattle. Abdukodir is grateful in advance for the support.

Абдукодир добродушный мужчина в возрасте 60 лет. Он женат и имеет пятерых детей. Все его дети уже взрослые и имеют свои семьи. Абдукодир живёт со своей женой в небольшом доме в сельском посёлке. Несмотря на свой возраст, он полон сил и желания работать на благо своей семьи. Абдукодир занимается деканством и животноводством. У него имеется земельная площадь, которая составляет около 12 га. Из общей площади земли 8 га составляет богарные земли, а остальная площадь это поливные земли. На этой земле Абдукодир занимается выращиванием моркови, картошки и зерновых культур. А его жена помогает ему ухаживать и растить скот. Так как земельная площадь у них большая, они также пасут на ней своих скот. Бизнес животноводства приносит хороший доход, поэтому Абдукодир хочет расширить этот бизнес, увеличив поголовье своего скота. Поэтому он обратился в Арванд, чтобы получить кредит на покупку скота. Абдукодир заранее благодарит Арванд за поддержку.

About MDO Arvand

MDO Arvand is one of the leading microfinance institutions in Tajikistan, offering small loans to entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses. This makes an enormous difference in a country, which is not only the poorest in Central Asia, but also home to a population where two-thirds live below the poverty line. Today, Tajikistan's economy literally depends on remittances being sent from family members working abroad in Russia because there are so few local job opportunities.

But Arvand loans have been able to make a difference and change lives. Read about some of the incredible success stories they have seen here in this Kiva blog post: Bringing hope to Tajikistan with Arvand -- one success story at a time.
