Aysel S. is 26 years old. Aysel owns a successful clothing sales business at the central market in Lankaran. She has been running this business for 5 years. Her business has benefited from a good sales location and constant demand for her products. Aysel tries to offer good prices to her customers while still making a profit.
Aysel has requested a loan of 1600 AZN to increase her inventory. This is a busy time for many market vendors, because the cold season is coming and everyone is preparing for the winter season. By purchasing additional inventory, Aysel will be better prepared to meet the increased demand and earn a good income. We believe her perseverance and natural liveliness will help her continue to succeed in her trade and repay this loan on time.
