Balabeyim Baylar Giz
Since 2000, Balabeyim has supported her family by working as a cook in her small business. Actually, she is a very communicative person who loves people and accepts them as they are. In her view, cooking is some kind of art which reflects the feelings and mood of a cook. She likes international cousine but national dishes such as dolma, plov, khingal are her favorite ones.
Now, she needs a loan of $600 to further develop her business, to buy new kitchen appliances, to increse her incomes via diversifying the menu and attracting more clients.
