A loan of $5,425 helped to pay for renovations in her at-home store, and to buy more stock.


Diba's story

Diba engages in clothing sales in her at-home store, through a booth at the open-air market (souk), and by making deliveries to customers with the help of her family. With many of her customers, she sells items by order. For others, she provides an inventory with a range of popular choices. The fact that Diba has diversified how she meets her customers' needs, helps her to maintain ongoing business growth and hope for a decent income.

Diba needed this loan to assist her with paying for renovations in her at-home store, and with buying more stock. Diba wants to continue and see her business do well. She wants to help her children and nieces with their studies and with establishing their own homes.
