Elena is from Tajikistan and loves her country very much. She is 39 years old, is divorced and has two children. To make a living, Elena sells honey at the market. Her goods are of high quality and attract a lot of customers. She has been engaged in her business for 12 years but earns little money from these activities.
Elena works around eight hours a day at the local market. She thinks her business is going well because she is very kind and she always loves what she does.
Elena is requesting a loan of 7,000 TJS which will be used to buy more food items to sell. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve her family's general living conditions.
