A loan of $425 helped to buy shoes for the new season.


Hanifa's story

A few years ago, Hanifa's husband died. It became very difficult for her to cope with her family's expenses as her husband left them nothing. She is the main breadwinner for her family which includes her three children. She is the light in the lives of her kids and their only hope. Twenty years ago, she started her own business selling women's and men's footwear at a local market. She has her own space where she sells her goods. She mostly sells to women since the demand is higher than it is for men's and children's shoes. She needs to update her selection for the new season to attract more clients since she needs to earn more money for her orphaned children. She's asking for a loan of 2,000 KGS to buy the new season's styles. She awaits your kindness and relies on your mercy.
