Sayed Ghulam
Sayed Ghulam S. grew up in refuge in neighboring Pakistan during the Afghan civil wars. His father is an old and weak man, so Ghulam S. as a boy was virtually the only breadwinner and had to work hard to support his 8-member family. The family had rented a small store for Ghulam, which he tended to full-time, 7 days a week. The business went well and Ghulam was soon able to purchase that store.


After the fall of the Taliban, Ghulam and his family decided to return to their homeland, Afghanistan. They are residents of the eastern Ningarhar province. Ghulam is pursuing the same business of retail in Afghanistan, but the business is not going well because the inventory is too small for his clientele.


Ghulam S. hopes to expand his business and therefore his profitability by increasing his store inventory. Increase of inventory will also make the business interesting as he is bored and almost fed up with the size of the business he has right now. Sayed Ghulam S. has applied for a 50,000 Afghanis loan to achieve this goal. Ghulam hopes that by increasing his business, he will be able to support his family, send his siblings to school, and watch them become doctors and engineers.
