Ziyoda's story

Ziyoda is a hard-working and kind woman. She is 37 years old and is married with four children at home. Ziyoda's mother lives with them. Since she has a very large family and supporting such a large family is difficult, Ziyoda decided to find her own source of income. For a few years she has worked as a schoolteacher and her salary is not enough to support her family. Her husband works in raising livestock and he has a great deal of experience in this field. For this reason, Ziyoda has decided to start her own business raising animals, as her husband has promised to help her run her business. With the goal of starting her business, she enrolled in the "Get Ahead" course offered by the Association of Businesswomen and earned a certificate. Now she is fully capable of starting her own business and becoming successful in that sphere. She will buy a herd of livestock, look after it for a few months and sell them on at a higher price than she originally paid. She is asking for a loan of 1,500 somoni to buy the livestock to start her new business. She is awaiting your kindness.
