Muhabatkhon's story

Muhabatkhon is 56 years old. She is a woman of good taste and she has a kind heart. Her husband died young, leaving her with one son. She raised her son alone, married him off, and now she has two grandsons. To earn an income and help his mother, Muhabatkhon's son went to work in the Russian Federation. However, he doesn't send any money to the family. Having not received any money from her son, Muhabatkhon decided to start her own business in processing apricot kernels. With this goal in mind, she studied in a course called "Achieve Success" that is organized by the Association of Business Women and she received a graduation certificate. She now has business-related skills. She will buy apricot kernels, clean them with a special machine, and then sell them at the local market. Her daughter-in-law will help her with the business. She plans to use the income she earns to provide her grandsons and daughter-in-law with all the necessities of life. She is requesting a loan of 4,500 somoni to buy the machine for cleaning the apricot kernels so she can start her business. She is relying on your kindness.
