A loan of $425 helped to buy dowry for the bride of her son.

Qumriniso's story

Qumriniso is an older woman, who has four sons, and the youngest wants to marry. Qumriniso has prepared for this, saving a dowry for the bride. In our area, according to the old ritual, the groom's family should give dowry before the wedding. All these gifts are expensive and therefore one needs to prepare several years for this arrangement.

Qumriniso works as a nurse at the hospital and after having been told about our services by her colleague, she came to our organization for a loan. She liked the terms of partial payment and she received her first loan for her needs. As the sons, daughters in law and husband of her family works, they help her with the repayment, and she does not find it difficult to cover her loan. Currently she intends to continue working with us - receiving a round sum it covers her major costs.
