A loan of $650 helped to purchase products to prepare food.


Gulnora's story

Gulnora is 34 years old. She has a son, who is two years old. She is raising him on her own. Gulnora got divorced from her husband when the child was very little and now she and her son live in the city of Kulob at her sister's house. Gulnora has been preparing and selling food at a local market for about two years. Many salespeople eat from her kitchen. Gulnora prepares the food at home and then delivers it to the market. Her menu includes national dishes. She prepares various soups, pilaf, piroshki, cakes and various other baked goods and dishes. Holidays will soon start in Tajikistan, and Gulnora is requesting this loan to purchase products and prepare more dishes. There will be more customers closer to the holidays, and Gulnora will be feeding not only other salespeople, but customers as well.
