She tells us that over two years ago she decided to start her business of selling shoes by catalog. She started her business because she wants to help her husband with the household expenses. She also wants to give her children a better quality of life.

Obdulia sells her shoes by going door to door. She shows her friends and neighbors her catalog. She gets the order, and she leaves to buy what is ordered. She takes the orders to her customers, and she receives payment for her products. She also tells us that sometimes her customers come to see if she has new catalogs, and they place orders. She says that it gives her a lot of joy that her business is prospering.

She needs this loan for catalog sales and shoes that she will later sell. Obdulia hopes that with this investment her business will prosper. She also hopes that in the future she will give her children a profession.
