A timely loan helps an Afghan company improve its products – and prospects
BEFORE Dehgan Roz manufactured plain yoghurt using the most basic equipment and production process. Its lackluster premises were reflected in its balance sheet. AFTER Modern processing machinery has enabled the company to improve food safety, hygiene and the quantity and quality of its products.

For years, Dehgan Roz manufactured plain yoghurt using the most basic equipment and production process. Milk from two suppliers was made into yoghurt, which was delivered to small shops in Kabul.
The company was able to raise its game after it procured a loan from the USAID-funded Agricultural Development Fund. It bought modern processing machinery and was able to improve the quantity and quality of its products. And it started to buy milk directly from producers around Kabul. Dehgan Roz’s metamorphosis is a good example of the way a loan can bring about positive change.
