A loan of $375 helped purchase of honey for sale.


Karomat's story

Born in 1967, Karomat T. is married and has 4 children. She sells honey and vegetables. During the summer, when hardly anyone buys honey, Karomat sells tomatoes and dried fruits. Previously, her husband was involved in the sales as well. He used to deliver the products for sale. Now, he left to work in Russia. Karomat has to now travel and deliver the honey on her own. The beekeepers are old friends of her husband; thus, Karomat is able to buy honey from them at a much better price than from other beekeepers. It has already been a year since Karomat learned the business and sells at the market.
