A loan of $325 helped to make repairs to her kitchen.


Marhamat's story

Marhamat is a 48 year-old woman and a mother of two children, whom she raised on her own and married off her daughter. Marhamat's son works as a security guard at a market, and his monthly income is only 300 somoni, which is not enough to cover living expenses for himself and his mother. This is why Marhamat works as a janitor at a sales office, and her income is 250 somoni. But it is clear from this family's monthly income that the family is unable to start repairs of their apartment, and this is why Marhamat wants to use this loan to make repairs to her kitchen and use her income to gradually repay the loan on a monthly basis. She is grateful to the organization for this opportunity to solve her family problems.
