Matanat is a mother of 2 children. She lives in the city of Baku. She started this business 5 years ago after the death of her husband. She is grateful that the first loan she obtained from Kiva helped her. However, she now needs 2000 AZN in order to buy products for resale. This store has a small number of new products, and Matanat wants to expand her store. In the future, she wants her daughters, who are 10 and 16 years old, to go to a universities because, according to her own words, since no one knows what would happen tomorrow, they should have an education.
