Karomat's story

Karomat is a very hard-working woman. She is 50 years old and a widow with four children in her care. She plans to start her own business to help provide for her family's needs. With this goal in mind, she took the "Bring It On" course organized by the Association of Businesswomen and received a certificate. Now she is fully capable of starting her business and becoming successful in that area. She wants to start a business buying and selling livestock. Her elder children can help her run this business. She is asking for a loan of 6,000 Somoni to buy her livestock so she can start her new business. She is awaiting your kindness.
