Maludahan's Group's story

Maludahan is the treasurer of this group. She is 55 and divorced. Maludahan is a resident of Kerben, a small village in the south of Kyrgyzstan. Four years ago, with an initial investment of 15,000 soms, she started to sell fruits and vegetables in the market. At the moment, her business runs well; she earns about 9,000 soms per month. Maludahan applied for the loan because she needs additional financial funds for purchasing a variety of fruits and vegetables. In the future, with the profits gained from her business, she plans to start repairing her house. Where Did This Loan Come From?
