O. Khushbaht is 52 years old. She is married, and she has four children. Her husband is currently unemployed, which is why Khushbaht is now the primary bread-winner. As is the case with any mother, she wants her children to have everything they need, and her dream is to see to it that her children all receive higher education. She sells clothes and shoes for kids in the local market, and she has been in this business for 10 years. Because she is always very friendly, she has built up a loyal client base over the years.
The business is stable, but she would like to generate significantly more income to further improve her family's living conditions. With this purpose in mind, she is requesting a loan in the amount of $100 to be paid back over a 6-month term in order to expand her inventory by purchasing new men's shoes. Khushbaht thanks all for your support and promises to pay the loan back on time.
