Sharafniso's story

Sharafniso S. is 48 year old widow with three children. Sharafniso has almost never had anyone's assistance in helping her children get ahead. For fifteen years she has worked as a baker, making the national Tajik bread, “lepeshka”. Sharafniso works hard to earn an honest livelihood. She gets up early and bakes lepeshka so that people have fresh bread on their tables for breakfast. Initially Sharafniso only baked the bread and was not involved in selling it. Gradually, however, the business expanded as her children grew up. Today the bakery is a family business where Sharafniso’s children help her. Sharafniso sells her bread in the local market place where she has many clients. These sales allow her to improve her family’s income.

Today Sharafniso requests 3400 Somoni (1,000 USD) in order to purchase flour and firewood for baking lepeshka. She assures lenders that she will be ready to repay the loan in twelve months and thanks everyone for trusting and supporting her. The well-being of her family is in your hands.
