A loan of $1,900 helped to open a village bar and cafe.


Qamile's story

Qamile is planning to open a little bar and café in the village where she and her family reside. A married mother of four school-aged children, she suffers from a so-called "invisible disability."

“I am not able to do any physical work, and since this type of activity doesn’t require any physical labor, I thought it would be good for me to run this business instead of relying on governmental disability income," she says. "I can earn my own income through this opportunity. This will be a little village bar and cafe, so there is no need for fancy staff. It will serve the villagers who want to get together face to face and have a cup of coffee or a traditional alcoholic drink such as raki [anise-flavored alcoholic drink]. This loan will come in very handy to me and I’m very thankful to all the lenders in advance."
