Gülşah's story

Gülşah is 33 years old, married and the mother of three. She lived in a village with limited opportunities, but looked for jobs to help support her children and the family budget. She learned of microcredit when the staff visited her village to introduce it.

She lacked a business idea, but came up with a plan to make pastry at home. First, Gülşah received a microcredit of 1,000 TRY through TGMP. She increased the variety of her products to grow her business.

When her children grew up and her husband had confidence she's able to do this work, she opened a restaurant in the city center. Gülşah plans to purchase tables and chairs for her restaurant with the help of a 5,000 TRY microcredit she hopes to receive through Kiva.
