Umri's story

Born in 1958, Umri S. is married and has five children. She does not have a higher education. Umri has been working with MicroInvest since 2007. She received her first loan to use for her garden, where she planted tomatoes and other vegetables. Over time, Umri changed her business from agriculture to retail sales and opened a small clothing store. She now sells a large inventory of women’s clothing, including robes, dresses and socks. She has been selling at the market for over 10 years.
