A loan helped To buy fall and winter women's clothing and shoes.
Istat is a 27-year-old resident of Konibodom. She is raising two children on her own since her husband isn't in the country. He is currently a migrant worker in Russia as he was unable to find suitable work in his own area. Istat has worked for the last two years in her aunt's store. She buys inventory herself, and then resells it. Istat mostly focuses on selling women's shoes and clothing. In preparation for the upcoming winter, Istat is taking out a loan to buy a collection of fall and winter clothing and shoes for women. She understands how hard it is for children at this time and she tries to give them everything. She feels that the welfare of her family depends on her income and therefore she works very hard.
