A loan of $1,875 helped buy cattle.


Mayram's story

Mayram is 57 years old. She is married with children and with wonderful grandchildren. Mayram is a very conscientious and responsible woman. When she was young, she was unable to study because of her family's financial problems. Her family works in animal husbandry and and she has spent her entire life fattening cattle; she helped her parents when she was a child. Mayram is very sorry that she was unable to get an education and had to work cattle, so her dream is that her grandchildren will be able to learn a profession. Mayram works day and night to achieve this goal.

Raising animals is the family's only source of income. Also Mayram's milk cow produces ten liters of milk every day, and she makes dairy products. Her neighbors buy her milk, yogurt and curds. Her husband buys and sells cattle. He goes to the cattle market every month to buy and sell. Thus they live and save money for educating their grandchildren. Mayram has been an active client of Arvand for several years and has a good credit history. She is grateful that Arvand comes to help her family and, if necessary, offers them loans. This cooperation helps her family live and provide decent living conditions for their children and grandchildren. Mayram once again approached Arvand and wants to take out a loan to buy cattle and increase their herd. Mayram has high hopes for financial support.
