Rafoat's story

Rafoat is 51 years old, married and has three children. Her husband works at a factory. She sells cakes and pastries. Bakeries deliver products to her, and she sells them. Rafoat has been in the business for 15 years and has been partnering with our organization since 2010. This is a good season for sales. New Year's holiday is coming up, and she plans to sells almost all of her products. According to Rafoat, she sells over 20 cakes and several boxes of confectionery goods every day. She has regular customers, who come not only from the cities, but from remote districts. Because she has a large order for cakes, she needs cash, and this is why she is requesting this loan from us.
