Marina's story

Marina M. lives in the Gissar district. She is 47 years old and a widow with three children. She completed a college education. She has always been a middle school teacher, but after her husband's death five years ago she started a business as well, selling rice at Gissar's Somon Market. In this season of the year rice prices rise, so she decided to apply for a loan to buy a reserve of rice. This will help her maintain prices until the new harvest so she doesn't lose customers. Her eldest son is also a middle school teacher.
