A loan of $650 helped buy children's clothes for starting a new business.


Mahbuba's story

Mahbuba was born in 1959. She is married, and is a caring mother with 2 children. She always puts her family first, and does what she can for their benefit. In spite of her age, she remains hale and hearty, and always seeks to try out new things. She hopes to start her own business dealing in children's clothing; to this end, she has taken a course organized by an association for businesswomen titled "Attain Success". Mahbuba wants nothing more than to get her business up and running, but she lacks the money to do so. As such, she is requesting a loan of 3000 somoni to stock up on children's clothes. She needs your help, and is counting on your kindness.
