M. Barfioy is 36 years old, married, and has 3 children.
Barfioy earns income selling children's clothing and shoes in a local market. She has been in this business already for 10 years. Her husband could not find work for a long time and left the country two years ago to go to Russin in search of employment. As any mother, Barfioy wants her children to have everything they need. She also hopes that all of them will have the opportunity to obtain higher education. Considering that such goods as children's clothes and shoes are highly demanded regardless of the season of the year, the business is a rather stable income generation source for Barfioy, allowing her to support her family. Currently, Barfioy needs a loan to be able to purchase a stock of children's summer shoes for sale. She is asking for US$600 for a term of 6 months. Barfioy thanks everyone for supporting her and promises to be timely in the loan repayment.
