Shahnoza's story

Shahnoza is a hardworking woman. She is 39 years old, married and has four children. For more than 11 years she has worked in agriculture: livestock and farming. She is the main breadwinner for her family since her husband is a immigrant worker in Russia. Her sons also work in Russia. Shahnoza runs her business alone. She buys cattle, fattens them over a few months and then resells them at a local market at a higher price. She must marry two of her sons, however her home is small and there aren't additional rooms for her sons and their wives. She plans to build a new home for her sons. She is asking for a loan of 5,000 KGS to buy construction materials such as cement, wood, sand, etc. She awaits your kindness and relies on your compassion.
