A loan of $225 helped to purchase chili peppers, cloves, and cardamom in large quantities.


Sofia's story

Sofia, age 25, operates a business making and selling spices. With the support of her husband (shown with her in the picture), she has run her business for many years. Sofia makes the spices by grinding chili peppers, cloves, and cardamom, while her husband assists her in packaging them and then selling them to people in their community.

Sofia and her husband have retained a regular list of customers and earn enough to meet the household expenses. They have three children.

To cope with the increasing demand of her customers, Sofia requested a loan in the amount of Rs. 20,000, which she will use to purchase chili peppers, cloves, and cardamom in larger quantities.

She hopes to see a boost in her earnings and wishes to spend the better part of her profits on the improvement of her family's standard of living.
