Shafiga B. is 53 years old and is married with four children.
Shafiga has been running her business for more than 15 years. She is selling women's clothing and underwear. This business is the only financial income in her family; this income is sufficient for supporting the family but not enough to improve their living conditions.
Now Shafiga has applied for a loan of 1000 USD. She plans to use the loan to increase her working capital. The generated income will be used for purchasing women's clothes for the winter season. She thanks everyone who supports her!
