Raya's story

Raya is 54 years old, married and raising three children. She is very hardworking and has more than 10 years of experience buying and selling food products in a store. She handles her business alone since her husband is a worker, although her husband also helps. From this business her monthly profit is 120 AZN.
Raya sells groceries like rice, bread, sugar, eggs, milk, sausages, as well as other daily use products like deodorant, perfume, gel, soap and other accessories. She runs her business in her yard which is located at her house.
Raya continues to improve her business, increasing the quantity of products and basic goods. On this occasion she asks for 2000 AZN to buy groceries like rice, oil, bread, sugar, eggs, milk, sausages and other things for sale in her store. She has a good loan history; this is her third loan.
