Venera's Group's story

Venera is the treasurer of this group. She is 37 and married to a joiner. Together with her husband, she brings up three daughters, all of whom are at school. Venera works as a flute teacher at the music school. A year ago, with an initial investment of 20,000 soms she started to sell grocery goods at home. Her monthly profit from the trade is 5,000 soms. She applied for the loan because she needs additional financial funds to purchase sugar, oil and macaroni for trade. In the future with the profits gained from the trade, Venera wants to purchase furniture to improve the family’s living conditions.
