Rubaba I. sells cosmetic products in her own store. She is 46 years old, married and has three children. Rubaba has been running the store for the past seven years. The inventory she has for sale is of very good quality and selection. Rubaba is respectful and patient with all of her customers, which attracts people and brings them back to her store to buy groceries again. Rubaba is trying to sustain her business and has requested a loan of 1607 AZN to increase the inventory she has for sale. We believe this current loan will enhance the potential of her business and help Rubaba reach all of her aspirations.
