A loan of $650 helped purchase livestock.


Shavkat's story

Shavkat is a laid back and cheerful young man of 28. He is married and has three children. Shavkat's family still lives in his parent's house, in a small village next to a large field. After finishing high school Shavkat was not able to attend college, due to his family's financial situation. Instead he learned how to be a farmer from his father. They pasture cattle on the field next to their house and this provides income for the family. After marriage Shavkat decided to continue his father's business and took over the responsibilities for everything, so that his father wouldn't have to work hard and could take care of his health. Thus, Shavkat is raising livestock for a living and wants to expand his business so that in the future he will have enough income for a comfortable life. Also he wants to be able to provide his children with everything necessary and give them a good education. Currently Shavkat plans to buy a few more cows for his herd so that he can make more money. For this reason Shavkat has turned to Arvand and is requesting a loan to purchase the animals. Shavkat is thankful in advance to Arvand for financial assistance.
