Bohir is a good and decent 25-year-old man. He earns his living fattening up livestock. He is married and has two children, both sons. His wife is a homemaker but in her spare time she helps her husband feed the animals. At present they have ten head of cattle, eight of which are milk cows that provide five or six liters of milk per day. Bohir's wife makes dairy products and sells them to friends and neighbors. They work night and day, trying to ensure that their children have everything they need. They have have a very good income from their business.

Bohir also farms, but his main business is fattening up the cattle. Right now he is planning to add to his herd because cattle are less expensive. He wants to fatten them up before wintertime and then sell them close to winter for a higher price, so he is turning to MDO Arvand for a loan. He really hopes they will help and sustain him financially.

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.
