Muhabbat's story

Muhabbat is 35 years old. She has suffered a difficult fate: her loving husband has passed away, leaving her with four children. Muhabbat has been working as a cashier at an airline counter for more than ten years. She has a lot of experience and knows all of the ins and outs of her job. She is working hard to provide a good standard of living for her children. She is now planning to repair her house, for it is very old and is in poor condition. Her children were overjoyed when they learned about her plan. She is requesting a loan in the amount of 7500 somoni to buy building materials, such as cement, sand, paint, etc. She awaits your kind assistance.
