Sharifa's story

Sharifa is an optimistic and hard-working woman, 50 years of age. She is married and has six children. Her children love and appreciate their parents very much. All of her children already have families on their own and live separately, but always remember to visit their parents and also help out financially. Sharifa and her husband live in a rural village in a small house. They also try to work to support themselves. Sharifa has been collaborating with Arvand since 2007 and is a responsible client. She took out loans a number of times in order to launch and develop her business. She still attempts to grow her business. Sharifa and her husband raise livestock for sale. She learned how do it when she was still very oung. Sharifa says that, she and her husband improved their life conditions, after having started the collaboration with Arvand, because prior to that she used to lack own funds and a possibility to develop her business thanks to which she supports herself. At present Sharifa has several heads of livestock, soon ready to be resold. This is why she wants to buy some more livestock for fattening and resale. This is why she applied to Arvand for a loan to buy cattle. Sharifa hopes for a positive outcome and thanks Arvand for its support in advance.
