Layli M. is 40 years old, married and the mother of four children. Layli's lack of a stable job and the slow productivity of her husband's business as an independent taxi driver doesn't leave enough money to pay the expenses of the home and of her little daughter. This was the reason that Layli decided to start her own business 10 years ago selling fabric for the national dresses. Little by little she has made her business grow, and by offering her clients the ability to pay in installments her orders are getting bigger. Now her business is running normally.
However, she would like to continue bettering herself (and her business) so her situation will be stable in the future, if something should happen. She is asking for a loan of 2500 Somoni (750 USD) that she will pay back in 4 months. With this money, Layli will be able to buy seasonal fabrics for the national dresses. The power to help her business grow is in your hands.
