View original language description ↓
Shahrinisso N. lives in the city of Vahdat. She is 43 years old, is married and has 6 children. She has a High School education. She is self employed. She sells household items from her own house. She sells laundry detergent, soap and other cleaning supplies. This business is the main source of income for her family. Her turnover, however, is relatively small and does not allow her to increase the variety of goods she has for sale. The profit from the business is just large enough to feed her family. Shahrinisso wishes to see her business grow and generate more and more profit. For this reason she wishes to obtain a loan, which will allow her to diversify her selection of goods up for sale. In addition to that, the loan will allow her neighbors, who are also Shahrinisso's main clients, to purchase more goods close to home without having to travel to the market. The client plans to repay the loan in a 9 months period.
