Sitora's story

Sitora is a good woman, but she has a very difficult life, as she separated from her husband and is raising two children on her own. She handles the expenses of the family herself, since her ex-husband does not help to support the children. She lives in the family home (of her parents).

For over five years, she has been buying and selling food products in a store, which is located near an oil production factory. She copes with the business herself and has regular customers. Sitora dreams of buying herself and her children all the necessities for a happy life. She has to buy food to expand the assortment of products, but she has no money. If she does not expand her product assortment, she will lose her customers, as other business owners periodically expand their range of goods.

She is the main breadwinner in the family and therefore worries that she may lose her customers and be left without money. She is asking for a loan of 7,000 somoni to buy food products such as assorted pastries, candy, tea, pasta, oil, salt, etc.
