Malakat G. is 47 years old. Malakat and her family are IDPs (internally displaced people); they relocated from the city of Fuzuli and now live in the Absheron region. During the time of their flight from the occupied Karabaxa territory, her husband tragically died and she was left alone with two small children. Now, her 19-year-old daughter goes to college and her 17-year-old daughter is in school and also practices dance. They help their mama very much around the home and at work.
Malakat has been engaged in the business of selling clothes for five years already. Malakat now needs a loan in order to expand her place of business. Near her store, there is a space where she would like to combine with her store and improve it. Now, Malakat especially needs this loan, due to the fact that she is lucky enough to be able to send her children to school, and therefore she needs to expand her place of business and to start offering many new and varied products and earn more money for her family.
