A loan of $525 helped to buy grocery items and open a store.

Zarina's story

Zarina is 43 years old and married. She, her husband, and children live in Vahdat, a city not far from the capital. Her husband works as an administrative manager in the school their children attend. Zarina had her own business until six years ago when circumstances forced her to close it.

Now she has decided to restart her business, since her children have already grown up a bit and she can dedicate herself to her business. To realize her goal, Zarina applied for a loan. She already has her own shop. With the loan funds and her own savings, Zarina wants to buy grocery items in order to open her store and start selling. She plans on expanding her business in the future and open a second store. She is very happy that she will again be independent. You'll have to agree that it's a pleasant feeling to know that you don't have to rely on anyone and that you can allow yourself and your children some of the fun things in life.
