A loan of $525 helped food products.


Ugul's story

Ugul is 50 years old, married and has three children. In the past, when she was not working outside the home she was very bored. Seeing that their mother was feeling poorly, her sons advised her to open a stall at the market to sell food products. Her sons keep her stall stocked with inventory, and do the heavy work. Ugul learned from neighboring businesses that credit could be used to increase working capital, and she decided to expand the assortment of products she offers for sale. She generally sells pasta. but after receiving the loan branched out into other food products.
