Musharaf M. has been an active client of the MicroInvest since 2002. She is very reliable and respects the loan procedures of MicroInvest. The stability of her clothing business helped her to return the previous loans and to improve on the business terms of the loan. She started her business practically from the scratch but thanks to the financial support of the MicroInvest loans she has been able to open her own trading outlet in a popular bazaar. She trades men's, women's and children's clothing and has a rather good assortment so she has many customers who are loyal and only buy from her. Now Mrs. M. Musharaf applies to KIVA with a request for financial support. She requests a loan pf 2500 TJS for 7 months to expand the existing trade area.
