Mahbuba
Mahbuba is 47 years old, married, and has two children. She always wanted to provide them with a good education and since her husband’s income is not enough to provide the family with a good quality of life, she decided to start new business selling dried fruits.

Mahbuba is requesting a loan for 3,000 Somoni, which she will use to buy dried fruits. She studied the course ‘To get ahead’ for women's organizations where she learned business skills. Her daughter will help her with business.
