A loan of $1,050 helped to buy children's clothes.


Musalam's story

Musalam is a very attentive and kind woman. She is raising 3 children. Her husband works in Russia, but sends home money every month for the children. Musalam sells children's clothing, and she has a store which she leased herself at one of the markets in town. She loves children very much, and therefore decided to sell children's clothing. Earlier, she had her merchandise delivered by vendors, which was more expensive. She has now decided to go and purchase the merchandise herself. Musalam dreams that her children receive a good education and work in a professional field in the future. She hopes that, in her old age, her children can be her support. Because Musalam has decided to start traveling by herself to purchase merchandise, she needs the financial means to do so. She learned from her friends that she can request a loan from the Avrand organization, and has decided to submit an application. This is her first loan from Avrand and, because of this, she is very serious about receiving a loan. She plans to use the loan to purchase a new assortment of children's summer clothing, and expand her business.
