Hamida's story

Hamida is an educated woman who lives in Rudaki. She is 39 years old, married and has three children. Hamida has a college degree and works as a teacher at the local school. Since her salary is too small toprovide for her family, Hamida has decided to start her own business. The hot summer is the season for selling watermelons and cantaloupes. Hamida analyzed the market and decided to sell these fruits. She has already purchased a market stall and she has a starting capital of 4000 somoni, which were sent by her husband, a migrant worker in Russia. Hamida will use this loan along with her savings to purchase watermelons and cantaloupes and start selling them. This lucrative business will help Hamida improve the financial situation of her family.
