Her other encouraged her to start her own business since she couldn't find a job in her major so she should make income on her own. Today she has a lot customers, especially housewives and women who work in private businesses. That is how she has gotten ahead and not given up faced with the economic situation and lack of work.

Today she is asking for the loan to buy silver and steel jewelry in different styles, sizes and colors. This will allow her to offer more variety to her customers, especially during mother's day season when sales tend to increase.
