Taburjon is a positive and responsible man of 44. He was married, but unfortunately his wife passed away. Taburjon has three children, and now is now raising them by himself. Taburjon is used to working a lot to make a living and to meet the needs of his children. He hopes to raise them to be good and worthy people. Taburjon started working with Arvand only recently. He works repairing houses, but only earns a small salary. For this reason he decided to start his own business, which will provide him with a good income. He is planning to buy a welding machine and to use it to make a profit. This machine is in high demand, especially in a village, where things are constantly in need of being built. Taburjon thus turned to Arvand and hopes to receive a loan to buy a welding machine. He believes that, with the help of Arvard and Kiva, he can improve the financial situation of his family. Taburjon thanks Arvand in advance for its support.

Табурджон позитивный и ответственный мужчина в возрасте 44 лет. Он был женат, но к сожаления его жена умерла. Табурджон имеет троих детей. И ему пришлось самому воспитывать своих детей. Поэтому Табурджон привык много работать, чтобы зарабатывать на проживание, а также удовлетворять все потребности своих детей. Он желает воспитать их хорошими и достойными людьми.

Табурджон начал сотрудничать с Арванд совсем недавно. Сам он работает мастером по ремонту домов. От этой работы он получает небольшую зарплату. Поэтому он решил начать ещё своё дело, которое будет приносить ему хороший доход. Сейчас он собирается купить сварочный аппарат и использовать его для получения прибыли. Этот аппарат имеет большой спрос, особенно в сельской местности, где необходимо постоянно что-то строить. Поэтому Табурджон обратился в Арванд и хочет получить кредит на покупку сварочного аппарата. Он верит, что с помощью Арванд и Кива он сможет улучшить экономическое положение своей семьи. Табурджон заранее благодарит Арванд за поддержку.

About MDO Arvand

MDO Arvand is one of the leading microfinance institutions in Tajikistan, offering small loans to entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses. This makes an enormous difference in a country, which is not only the poorest in Central Asia, but also home to a population where two-thirds live below the poverty line. Today, Tajikistan's economy literally depends on remittances being sent from family members working abroad in Russia because there are so few local job opportunities.

But Arvand loans have been able to make a difference and change lives. Read about some of the incredible success stories they have seen here in this Kiva blog post: Bringing hope to Tajikistan with Arvand -- one success story at a time.
