Kozima K. has been a widow for the past 15 years. Since she lost her husband, all family expenses fall on her shoulders. Kozima purchases dried apricots from small markets in her town, processes them at home and sells them at the central market every weekend. She has to wake up early in the morning to get the best apricots available at the best price. A loan would help her to expand her business and to reach her dream of providing a high education for her children.
