Amna's story

Amna is a divorced mother of seven adult children. She opened a mini-market ‎in her village to help support herself and her family. Over the last few years ‎she has expanded her items and gained a good customer base from the ‎surrounding area. The mini-market sells items needed on a daily basis and ‎helps her customers avoid having to travel to the large supermarket in the city.‎

Amna needed this loan for stock including new dairy items, children sweets snacks for school and cleaning supplies.‎

One of Amna's sons helps her with the bookkeeping. She makes sure to save ‎every month. She is working on buying a large commercial refrigerator and ‎expanding her market to include fruits, vegetables, beef and chicken.‎
