Rustam's story

Rustam is a good-natured 30-year-old man who is married and the father of one child. He and his wife lead a happy life and are doing all they can to give a good life to their child. Rustam makes a living from his own business and has been involved in buying and selling fruits and vegetables for a few years already. He used to work on a mid-size farm in the past, but he then decided to sell his own harvest. Using his own truck, he now transports his crops and sells them at the market in town. He also buys other types of fruits and vegetables at the market and resells them in his own store. This business brings him a stable and good income.

Rustam now wants to expand his business and he would also like to build a small kiosk, next to his house, where his wife could sell fruits and vegetables. He plans to use his loan to buy a large selection of fruits and vegetables. He has turned to Arvand to receive this loan, and he is hoping for a positive outcome.
