Gohar's story

This beautiful young lady is Gohar. Gohar works as a cosmetics brand representative in Vedi town. She trades the products from her place. During her almost four years in the field, she became a trustworthy retailer. Aside from that, she works as an editor at a local press.

Gohar applied for financial support intending to develop her retail business. The loan will be spent to bring in a new supply of cosmetics. She is sure that this enhancement will help to attract more clients and increase her income. Gohar is full of hope to reach the desired outcome and open her own little store in the future.
