Saidsharif Pirov, a father to seven children – three sons with disabilities and two elder sons infected with tuberculosis (TB), resides in Chorbog village of Vose district. For years, the main source of family income was three hectares of land, where mainly food crops were grown to barely sustain the family. Although there was a working potential in the family, opportunities remained limited due to a lack of financial means. Hope for a better life has glimpsed once UNDP introduced an initiative that supports families with TB patients by providing favorable loans for honey beekeeping and small business through Micro Loan Organization (MLO) “Rushdi Vose”.
