A loan of $2,000 helped to buy an inventory in order to start a fruit sales business.


Bibicha's story

Bibicha is a resident of the A. Jomi region. She is 59 years old. She is married to a man named Karomatullo. He is retired. Bibicha thinks that it's never to late to open her own business in selling fruits and vegetables. Bibicha is a very purposeful woman and she has found a place for her store. She is preparing to buy up fruits at the Farovan bazaar in Dushanbe and resell them at her local market.

Bibicha believes that she will be able to start her business and keep it moving forward. However, she doesn't have the means to buy her first inventory, and so she is requesting a loan with the hopes that people will help her. She needs this support.
