A loan helped to expand her business.


Safiya's story

Safiya is a very good woman. She is 54 years old, married, and has 5 children. Safiya lives with her family in a rural area. She and her husband have a very large family, including children and grandchildren. Safiya and her large family get together once a week to eat dinner together. They talk and tell each other about their successes. If someone in Safiya's family has a problem, then she and her husband and the rest of the children try to solve the problem.

Safiya herself works at the market. She has her own stand, and she sells dried fruit and various nuts. Safiya has been working at this business for 12 years now, and from it she gets a good and stable income.

At the moment, Safiya wants to expand her business, and for this she needs monetary funds.

She is thankful in advance to MDO Arvand for the help they have given her, and hopes for a favorable outcome.
