Her children are young; the oldest is 15 and the youngest is 13. She tries to ensure that they have everything they need and receive a good education. For several years she has been planning to buy a house, because they don't have a normal home. She is requesting a loan in the amount of 5000 somoni to buy a house. She awaits your kind assistance and is counting on your generosity.
