A loan helped to buy necessary building materials in order to repair her house and have better living conditions.

Rafoatkhon's story

Rafoatkhon is an entrepreneur and proactive woman who runs a successful business. She has been running it since 2011, and her husband has supported her in this effort. Rafoatkhon is also a careful mother of her 4 young children. She is 43 years old and lives in Gissar, Tajikistan with her splendid family.

Rafoatkhon and her husband bake patties and sell them in the cafe. Rafoatkhon has a lot of clients and great experience in this line.

Rafoatkhon and her children live in a small house, which is in poor condition. She decided to ask for a loan from Kiva's partner, IMON, to purchase the needed building materials to make repairs to her house and provide a safe and comfortable place for her family to live.

Rafoatkhon believes that, together with Kiva, her dream can come true.
