Gulsara is married and has three children. She always wanted to provide them with 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 a new business with animal husbandry in order to generate an income with which she can contribute to her home’s finances.

She works at the hospital, as a nurse, and has a small salary. She studied at the course ‘To Get Ahead’ in a women's organization and got enough skills about business. Her children will help her with her business. She will be a very successful businesswoman since she is hard-working and smart.

Gulsara is asking for a loan of TJS 500 (somoni) to buy cattle for starting her new business. She will get through, using the loan, and her business will be a source of income, so that her family can have a good quality of life and better financial opportunities to progress. She awaits your support.
