Rena H. is 36 years old and married, and she is the loving mother of two children. Rena’s husband is currently unemployed, so her business is the main source of income for her family.
Rena has a grocery store where she sells sweets (candies), preserved food, juices, soft drinks, detergents, and other products. She has been in this business for five years. The inventory she has for sale is of very good quality and selection. Rena is respectful and patient with all of her customers, which attracts people and brings them back to her store to buy groceries again.
Rena wants to keep her business sustainable and has requested a loan of 1,200 AZN to increase the inventory she has for sale.
One of Rena’s dreams is that her daughters progress by means of their studies. You can help Rena to approach her dreams.
