A loan of $325 helped to buy dried apricots to develop her business.

Zamira's story

Zamira is 46 years old and has 1 child. She is a very kind and hard-working woman, but her fate has been a difficult one. Her husband left her and their child, and does not provide any child support. Zamira has to manage to meet all expenses on her own. Her tough situation forced her to start her own business as a means of earning an income. For more than 7 years, she has been working in the field of processing and selling dried fruit, such as apricots. In the summer, she picks the apricots, processes them and sells them at the market as dried apricots, and she also sells other fruit that she buys from wholesalers. She is very courteous with her customers, so she has a large clientele. She uses her earnings from the business to pay for her child's food, clothes and education. She now wants to further develop her business. She needs to buy more goods to sell, but she does not have the financial means to do so. Zamira is asking for a loan of 1,500 Tajikistan Somoni to buy dried apricots. She is a repeat borrower of ours and has a good credit history. She is waiting for your kindness and promises to pay back the loan on time.
