A loan of $750 helped a member to pay for her study of the Chinese language.


Elmira's Group's story

Elmira A., 21, is the leader of this group and resides in the town of Nookat. She is not married, but lives with her father and two of her brothers, the oldest of whom teaches and the youngest serves in the army. A long time ago the family used to breed cattle, but soon her father earned enough to purchase a car and start driving a cab. It’s the main source of income for the entire family.

Elmira herself works as an interpreter of the Chinese language and would like to ask for a loan to pay for her studies. She would like to successfully graduate and visit China in the future.
