Mahina is a young, unmarried woman, engaged in baking. She is 26 years old and lives with her parents in the city of Dushanbe. After graduating from high school, Mahina was not able to go to college. In order not to sit around, she learned to bake muffins and cookies for sale. She was then 19 years old. From then until today, she has been in this business. She has become a master in this field. In her yard, Mahina has a small shop where she bakes delicious muffins and cookies, then serves them hot to other shops and supermarkets. Her goods are quickly spreading and her customers are increasing, which brings her a good income. Now Mahina wants to increase her production. She is requesting a loan to buy flour, margarine, sugar, walnuts, and eggs to bake a large quantity of cakes and cookies for sale.
