A loan of $425 helped to purchase raw materials for manufacturing gates.


Rakhmat's story

Rakhmat is a middle-age man, a good family man and a father of adult children. He is a welder by trade and is currently involved in manufacturing iron gates. Previously, when he first came to our organization, he and his sons were involved in selling food products and clothing outside the city limits. They had their own truck, which they used to deliver merchandise to districts. With time and age, Rakhmat got tired of traveling to distant districts and decided to get involved in a business in his own trade. Currently, he manufactures gates and fences at a leased factory for sale. His products are also ordered for the districts and rural areas, and his sons sell them, using their truck. Rakhmat has been obtaining loans from our organization for over two years and has used each loan to purchase raw materials. He does not complain of life and earns his bread proudly, despite his age and his children's help.
