Khafiza's story

Khafiza is a resident of the Gissar District. She is 59 years old. She is divorced from her husband and lives with her daughter and granddaughter. Her daughter works as a teacher in a secondary school. Khafiza is a hardworking and determined person. If she gives herself a goal, she will accomplish it.

Now her biggest goal is to open her own business and improve the financial situation of her family. She has long been interested in the retail sector, specifically buying and reselling women's clothing. She considers this to be a profitable business. Khafiza has already bought a stall at the local market. With the loan, she wants to bring in a collection of women's fabrics and scarves from the wholesale market in the capital and sell them in her stall at a profit. Khafize is requesting a loan for this purpose.
