A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase new jewelry inventory for her store.


Gulshan's story

Gulshan is a smart, honest and hardworking woman. She is a widow and is raising her three children alone. Gulshan has been reselling jewelry for the last 12 years and has started her business with a tiny amount of money, expanding slowly. She is raising her children on her own so it is hard for her to provide for them and she always needs support. Every morning Gulshan leaves home and comes back late at night. The money which she makes is only enough for day-to-day spending and it's hard for her to save for the future. For this reason Gulshan would like to take out a loan of 5000 Somoni to purchase more jewelry in bulk and expand her business, increasing her profits and improving the living conditions for her family.
