A loan of $650 helped to buy bags of flour to develop her business.


Mamlakat's story

Mamlakat lives with her daughter-in-law and grandson in the city of Khujand. Her son is working abroad, and she does not have a husband. Mamlakat is 60 years old. She sells flour from her home; in order to sell her goods at the market, it is necessary to pay rent on a trade stall. Customers come straight to Mamlakat's home to buy flour. For the most part, her customers consist of neighbors and bakers from flatbread shops. Mamlakat has been involved in buying and selling flour for seven years and has successfully promoted her business. She is requesting a loan to buy more bags of flour and to increase the circulation of goods. Additionally, Mamlakat works in a school, but is trying to spend more time at home near her only grandson.
