But Gulnora isn't giving up and is ready to resume her lost business and continue to work. For this very reason, she is applying for a loan of 135,000 KGS, which she needs to restart her business. She plans to purchase a variety of detergents to resell at the local market. Gulnora’s motto is not to look back but to move ahead.
