A loan of $400 helped buy cattle.


Turgunoy's story

Turgunoy is a cheerful and good-natured woman. She is married and has four children. Turgunoy lives in a rural village with her family. Turgunoy has been working with Arvand since 2012. Turgunoy's husband works as a laborer in the city. Her husband's salary is not enough to support the family. So Turgunoy decided to start her own business, and began raising cattle. Turgunoy makes a decent income doing this. Currently, Turgunoy has several head of cattle which will soon be sold. Therefore, Turgunoy wants to buy a few head of cattle to fatten and sell. However, she does not now have enough money to buy cattle. She went to Arvand to get a loan to buy cattle. Turgunoy is hoping that this will turn out well and thanks Arvand in advance for its support, which helps her to improve their quality of life.
