Asal's story

Asal T. is a 43-year-old widow, raising her three children all by herself. Her children serve as an inspiration to her to work hard each and every day and to continue on with her business. When her husband passed away, Asal was left without steady income, and supporting her children on her own was very difficult. After a long period of suffering, she decided to open a grocery store near her house about 7 years ago. Owing to the fact that Asal owns and operates the only grocery store in her community, her business did well as soon as it got off the ground. Asal is trying to generate a sufficient amount of income to not only support her family and the family's daily consumption needs, but also to be able to save enough money for the dowry of her daughters and for the future weddings of all of her children.

Now, Asal is planning to increase the variety of the goods she offers for sale. With this plan in mind, she requests a loan in the amount of 2,000 Somoni ($600) for the term of 9 months. Please support this woman of great strength and courage because your generosity can have a lasting impact on her and her family's lives.
