A loan of $2,500 helped finish building and buy inventory to open a grocery store.


Firuza's story

Firuza is 40 years old. She lives in Rudaki with her husband, two sons, and a daughter. To provide for the family, her husband and oldest son went to work in Russia. Her second son is a university student, and her daughter is still in school. Firuza is building a shop next to her house to open a new business. She is opening her own grocery store. Unfortunately, Firuza ran out of savings, and she does not have the means to finish the building and purchase inventory. Firuza, though inexperienced in trade, dearly wants to improve her family members' lives and hopes for a better future. She is taking out a loan, and wants to spend some of the money to buy building materials to complete the renovation. The rest of the loan is going to buy food including salt, tea, pasta, sunflower oil, sausages, dumplings, baby formula, chocolate, candy, sweetened condensed milk, cakes, cookies, napkins, and more. Firuza has a kind face and a pure soul. Life should be good for this kind of woman. You can help her!
