Rokhaya's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy food products to resell.
Mrs. Rokhaya is married and the mother of four children. She's been a merchant for the past two years. Her husband supported her financially when she started her business. At first, Rokhaya sold breakfasts. She now sells food products and owns a small shop in the neighborhood market. She opens at 10 a.m., takes a break at 1 p.m. and goes back home at 7 p.m. She doesn't have any expenses to cover, but she wants to help her husband to manage the household expenses, voluntarily and without constraints. Thanks to the loans, she can at least increase her stock. Rokhaya would like to see her business progress and her profits increase. She will then be able to support her only brother and help him take care of his needs.
