Aydibegim's story

Aydibegim is 29 years old. She is married and raising two children. Her family lives under some very difficult economic and psychological conditions. Her husband left for the Russian Federation to find employment as a migrant worker but he is not sending any money to help provide for the children. She therefore tries to support the family by herself, without counting on any help from her husband. She, alone, buys food, clothes for herself and the children, wood and coal for the winter. She, alone, also has to pay for the children's school fees and to cover other expenses which require a lot of money. She doesn't receive any money from her parents either, because their small income does not allow them to help. After looking at her options, Aydibegim has decided to focus on setting up her own business. To this end, she enrolled in a course entitled "Achieving Success", organized by the Association of Business Women, and from which she has earned a certificate. She can now start her business for good and become a successful entrepreneur. She wants to get involved in animal husbandry, because she has experience in this field. She will use her earnings to give her children a good education and to ensure that they eat a high-calorie diet. She is requesting a loan of 3,000 somoni to buy livestock to start her new business. Aydibegim and her daughter are awaiting your kindness.
