Sara S. is 39 years old. She is married and the loving mother of three wonderful children. Sara keeps her store where she sells different kinds of foodstuffs, which she has been running for the past 6 years. The inventory she has for sale is of very good quality and variety. Gulnora is respectful and patient with all of her customers, which attracts people and brings them back to her store to buy groceries again. Sara is seeking to keep her business strong and has requested a loan of 1200 USD for the term of 15 months to increase the inventory she has for sale. One of her dreams is that her children progress in their studies. We believe this current loan will enhance the potential of her business and help Sara reach all of her aspirations.
