Ugul's story

Ugul was born in 1963. She is a teacher with a higher education and has three children. She is married, and her husband, Rahimchon, works as a mechanic, which is a highly-demanded, non-seasonal profession, that brings in a stable income. Their son works at a butter plant, called Avangard. Ugul herself works at a secondary school as a Persian language teacher and an assistant principal of studies. After learning about the financing program, her school formed a solidarity group, consisting of teachers from this school, and started to obtain loans from our organization since 2009. This loan is being obtained for consumer goals. Ugul has previously used loans purposefully several times; she is respected among her colleagues and has a positive credit history. Her loan history is continuous, and she is glad to be partnering with us.
