Maftuna's story

Maftuna and her five year old child live together with her brother and his wife in one house. Maftuna is 32 years old and divorced. The last two years she has worked with selling light women's clothing, gowns and underwear at the central market of the village of Konibodom. When she is at work her brother's wife looks after her child. Maftuna's brother also works with sales. Maftuna had already gotten the baby when she divorced from her husband. She has to provide for herself and her son alone, as her ex-husband does not help them with financially.

To develop her sales, Maftuna currently needs to purchase new goods. Winter is soon here, and people are starting to only purchase warm clothes. For this reason Maftuna needs a loan. She would like to purchase winter clothing for the loan, as this will increase demand for her goods.
