P. Sohiba is 34 years old, married, and has three children. Already a while ago, her husband left for Russia for work purposes.
Sohiba earns income selling foodstuffs, such as noodles, macaroni, canned food, coffee, condensed milk, and mayonnaise at the local market of Gafurov city. Her sales stand is located in the center of the market. Sohiba tries to offer a wide variety of quality goods at acceptable prices. Her business is stable and generates a considerable share of the family's income, especially since Sohiba's husband is in Russia and is not yet able to send his earnings back to Tajikistan.
Currently, Sohiba needs a loan of US$1,000 for a term of 12 months. She is planning to purchase a variety of foodstuffs for sale. Sohiba is thankful to everyone for support and promises to pay the loan back in time.
