Shafoat's story

Shafoat is 51 years old. She is married and raising seven children. She has been a very hardworking woman since childhood and helped her parents with the household. Shafoat got married after finishing a secondary school. Not having pursued a higher education, she was left without any type of profession. She started having issues with money after giving birth to her children. Her husband was involved in farming, but his income was barely enough for living. Shafoat became involved in farming after the children grew up. Currently, she needs more money than ever before because her children grew up and have to get married. With the goal of obtaining a new source of income, she decided to start her own business in animal husbandry. She completed the "Achieve Success" course, organized by the Association of Business Women, and obtained a certificate. Shafoat came to IMON to obtain a loan in the amount of 2500 somoni to buy livestock. She awaits your kindness because her family budget and children's future depend on this new business.
