Because the small pension she received was not sufficient to cover the family's basic expenses, she decided to start her own business selling cosmetics. Little by little, she gained more clients and increased her sales. Her wish to provide for her children and offer them a good education is what motivates her each day to improve and grow her business.

Fotima needs a loan in the amount of 1500 Somoni (450 USD), to be repaid in 4 months, to purchase merchandise for the new season and continue growing her business.
