Muhabbat's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy sweets, cookies, biscuits, pastries, and cakes in order to increase her working capital.

Muhabbat's story

Muhabbat is 48 years old, married, and raising two children. Her husband works at a milk product company for a salary. She deals in buying and selling sweets and cakes.

She has been working for more than 22 years in this field, so she has great experience. She buys sweets, cookies, biscuits, pastries, and cakes from a market and resells them to her customers.

She gets a good income, but it demands a lot of work and requires payment of transportation expenses. She rented a place to sell the products. She plans to have her own grocery store.

She wants to increase her working capital in the future to build her own sweets store. She needs money in order to buy sweets, cookies, biscuits, pastries, and cakes for resale.

She is asking for a loan for the first time through Kiva’s field partner IMON. She awaits your support and kindness.
