Emel Hanım,evli ve 1 çocuğu var. Emekli olup İstanbul’dan taşındığı yerde,hiç kimseyi tanımıyormuş ve boşlukta kalmış. Bir gün sahili gezerken, takı satan arkadaşları görmüş ve bu işi yapmaya karar vermiş. Takı yapmayı öğrenmek için arkadaslardan yardım almış. CD lerden ,kitaplardan takı yapımını öğrenmiş. Beş yıl önce Sahilde tezgah açarak bu işe başlamış. Çalışarak arkadaş çevresinin genişlediğini söylüyor. Aldığı kredi ile boncuk çeşitleri,değişik çeşit taşlar ve takı yapımında kullanılan malzemeler alacak. Ne kadar çok çeşidi olursa o kadar çok satış yapacağını ve gelirinin artacağını düşünüyor.
Gelecek de ,bundan sonra sağlık ve huzur istiyor.
More information about this loan
Maya works to extend access to finance in Turkey, a country which, as a whole, has very limited microfinance services. By supporting this loan, you are helping Maya continue their work and specifically reach female borrowers in Turkey, many of whom come from rural parts of the country.
About MayaAlthough Turkey is one of the largest economies in the region, it has not reached its potential for microfinance investment. Deficient legal structures for microfinance credit initiatives and lack of quality information about microfinance demand and structure in Turkey are the largest obstacles to improvements in the field. Under these challenging conditions, Maya provides group and individual loans to low-income women who lack access to the financial services they need in order to start or improve their own small-scale businesses. Maya borrowers are part of lending groups, but are posted to Kiva as individuals. Therefore, lenders are exposed to additional risk of default in the event that a member of this borrower's group defaults on her loan. Maya, established in 2002, was Turkey’s first microcredit program. Maya is Kiva’s first Field Partner in Turkey and posted its first loans in August 2011. Headquartered in Istanbul, Maya has four branch offices. For more information, visit Maya’s partner page.
