A loan of $1,600 helped to buy a wedding dowry.


Manzura's story

Manzura is a friendly and active woman who is married and has children. She lives in a village and from an early age, she has been involved in handicrafts. Today she is a true master at work, making embroidered national costumes. Her efforts have led her to learn all the intricacies of her work and to teach a number of apprentices. From the moment she started her work, Manzura has made a habit of fulfilling orders to a very high quality.

Manzura's husband is a builder. Their married life is happy and they are trying to raise their children to be good people. Her eldest son is in medical school. Manzura and her husband earn a decent living from their work, but it is only enough for their food. Now their eldest son wants to get married and they are preparing a dowry for the couple. Manzura needs to buy many expensive items, but they don't have enough money for everything. This is why she has turned to Arvand - she wants to receive a loan to provide for her son's dowry. She thanks Arvand in advance for their support.
