A loan of $525 helped bread bakery.


Hafiza's story

Hafiza is a young woman of 39. She is married and has four children. She bakes and sells traditional bread, lepeshka. Her husband bakes the bread, while Hafiza minds the stall at the Panchshanbe marketplace and sells it. Their bread oven is located in their home. They set aside a room and installed a tandoor there, which you can see in the photograph. Traditional Tajik lepeshka is baked in this tandoor. In the past, Hafiza and her husband have purchased several months' worth of ingredients. With this loan, Hafiza and her husband purchased several bags of flour.
