Zarina's story

Zarina is a young grandmother. Her grand daughter's recent birth brought joy and light into her life. Zarina is very happy about having a grandchild, but the thought of hosting an event in honor of the child worries her. Just last year she threw the wedding party for her daughter, and used up her savings, so now she just doesn't have the money.

Zarina is a seamstress and good housewife. She has a 12 year work record, and her income is enough for everyday food expenses. Her husband had to leave to be a migrant worker. Zarina spends part of the money he sends back on the children's education, and she keep some for a raining day.

Despite the difficult position and financial hardships, she is glad to spend the money saved not on a rainy day, but on an party in honor of her grand daughter's birth. However, the saved money isn't much, and is only enough to pay for half of the plans. Zarina is asking for a loan to carry out her plans and goals. She decided to seek a loan from MDO Arvand. She wants to use the loan to buy presents for her grand daughter and daughter. She hopes for your help and support from Arvand, and thanks you for the assistance.
