Konul is 32 years old and is a very good entrepreneur. She is single and lives with her parents. She has five years of experience in selling women's clothing.
After her university degree, Konul decided to start her own business and not depend on anyone. She started with very little merchandise, but little by little her business grew and she started to sell clothes with excellent results.
Konul is very clear about the key to success in her business. She knows it is the variety of products that she offers, because if a client is looking for something that she does not have, he or she may never return. For this reason, she tries to be fully stocked.
Konul is requesting a loan of 1300 AZN to purchase merchandise and new clothes for the season.
