Nigina's story

Nigina is an energetic young woman. She is unmarried and lives with her parents in a small village. Ever since she was young Nignia has been enterprising and capable, always keeping busy and working so that she could earn money to support herself. Today she runs her own business and earns money selling assorted souvenirs, handmade crafts, and small toys. At first she only had a small selection of goods, but she has been gradually expanding her inventory. She has a successful business and earns a good income. Because she is ambitious and wants to work, Nigina would like to expand her business. However, she does not have sufficient capital, so she decided to apply for a loan with Arvand to purchase a batch of souvenirs to sell. She hopes for positive results and thanks Arvand for the support.
