Gulnaz I. is a resident of Tashkomur, a small city in the Jalalabad region in the south of Kyrgyzstan. Gulnaz is nineteen years old. Ten years ago her mother opened a cafeteria and now Gulnaz works with her mom. She earns about $430 per month. That profit made it possible for her to invest money to start building a house.
Gulnaz applied for the loan because she needs money to purchase sheep. After fattening, those sheep will be used for meat to prepare as food in their cafeteria. In the future she plans to expand their family business and maybe try to open a good restaurant.
