Farida's story

Farida is 42 years old and is married with two children at home. She started a business five years ago with the goal of providing for her family's needs, as her husband is a taxi driver and does not earn enough to support the family. She has a store near the central hospital where she sells food and dry goods. A few years ago, Farida's life took a difficult turn when her husband suddenly became ill and underwent surgery. After the operation, her husband couldn't work for two years. She thought long and hard about the solution to the problem of how to feed her family and decided to rent a storefront and borrow money from relatives. At first, it was very difficult, but she gradually grew accustomed and learned the skills of her trade. Farida is a second-time borrower with our organization. She has a good credit history and wants to expand her business so she can increase her income. She wants to use the proceeds from her business to educate her children. She awaits your kindness.
