A loan of $325 helped to buy furniture for her household.

Madina's story

Madina is 33 years old. She is married with three children. In order to provide the family with all the necessary means, she started a business six years ago buying and selling rice in the local market. She has regular customers in the local market and is trying to meet the needs of her customers. Her customers are locals and cafe owners who prepare and sell national "pilaf" dishes. Her customers are pleased with her because she has a high-quality product.

She is the main breadwinner for the family, as her husband is a simple work and earns little money. For several years, she has been planning to buy furniture for her rooms, but she is not able to save because she spends all her money buying the necessities. She is asking for a loan of 1,500 Somoni (TJS) to buy furniture.
