Gulbahor's story

The woman in the photo is Gulbahor, a very kind and responsible individual. She was born in Kanibadam, Tajikistan into a working-class family. Gulbahor is married and has four children. Gulbahor has been working with buying, selling, and processing dried apricotst for over 25 years. She has a great amount of experience and enjoys her job. Her income is small, so she works hard to feed her family. Her business is her family’s main income.

She is requesting a loan of 15,000 TJS to buy apricots. Gulbahor is submitting her request to Kiva’s partner, IMON. She is a returning borrower with a successful credit history and is asking for a loan for the tenth time. She hopes to continue her business with the support of lenders.
