Tuty is starting up a business of buying and selling dried fruits. Her husband is a farmer and they have two children. Tuty is a kind, hard-working person, and until now she has always worked with her husband on the farm, but after having taken the "To Get Ahead" training course for women, she is eager to start her own business. The course has taught her the skills needed to start this venture, and her husband will help her operate it.

Tuty is requesting a loan in the amount of 3,000 Somoni in order to buy dried fruits to organize her new business. She is confident that her loan funds will enable her to make her new venture a success and a profitable source of income.
