A loan of $2,500 helped to purchase candy and sweets.


Sharafniso's story

Sharafniso has been partnering with our organization since 2008. She sells candy and sweets at a market. Her husband works in Russia and sends money home monthly when possible. Sharafniso lives with her parents-in-law. She spends all day at the market while her mother-in-law raises her children. Sharafniso is saving money for her children's future to make sure that they are not in need for anything. She sets aside a certain amount from each earning. Sharafniso plans to use this loan to bring in a new selection of candy and sweets.
