A loan of $2,100 helped to pay for her son's wedding celebration.

Hurinisso's story

Hurinisso was born and raised in the countryside. She is 43 years old, married, and the mother of three adult children. Her family derives its main source of income from agriculture, essentially growing grains and vegetables such as potatoes, onions and carrots.

Hurinisso owns her farming business, and she runs it with her oldest son. She also makes an additional income from animal husbandry. However, because the family is large, and their income is small, Hurinisso and her family are poor. She doesn't have enough money to pay for her son's wedding party.

Hurinisso did not get the harvest she expected this year, so she is taking a loan to be able to celebrate her son's wedding. This loan will help a young man from a village, in the mountains of Tajikistan, to start a family.
