A loan helped to buy coal and flour for baking bread.

Nargis's story

Nargis is a bright and proactive woman from Kanibadam, Tajikistan. She is 38 years old, unmarried, and lives in a house with one of her parents.

Nargis runs a bakery and has great experience in this trade. She has been working for more than two years. Nargis manages this business with her mother. Her family’s living conditions are poor, so this business serves as their only source of income, which barely provides enough food for a large family. Nargis wants to keep running the bakery in order to support her family.

She is requesting a Kiva loan from IMON to buy coal and flour for baking bread, which will help to improve her family’s living conditions. Nargis awaits the support of the lenders, which is greatly needed.
