Gulsara's story

The woman in the photo is Gulsara, a very kind and responsible individual. She was born in Kanibadam, Tajikistan, to a working-class family. Gulsara is divorced and has three small children. Gulsara has been working with buying, selling, and processing dried apricot fruit for over five years. She has a great amount of experience and enjoys her job. Her income is small, so she works hard in order to feed her family. Her business is her family’s main income.

She is requesting a loan of 7000 TJS in order to buy apricot fruit. Gulsara is submitting her request to Kiva’s partner, IMON. She is asking for a loan for the first time. She hopes to continue her business with the support of lenders.
