Khafiza's story

Khafiza is 39 and married with two children. She sells men's clothing at the "Panshanbe" market in the city of Khujand. Khafiza purchases her inventory at the "Atushbazar" and "Somonbazar" wholesale markets and once a month she travels to the wholesale market in the nearby city of Istravshan. Khafiza has been a microcredit client with MLF for one year. She started out selling towels, socks and underwear. In the past year, Khafiza has been able to expand the types of products she sells and break into the men's clothing market. Khafiza is now applying for a loan in order to purchase men's shoes and further diversify her product line.
