Shamigul Y. is 45 years old. She is a widow and has two children.

Shamigul has never had anyone's assistance in helping her and her children, especially after the death of her husband 5 years ago. Therefore, she has been working to grow her business to support her family. Shamigul sells fuels - petrol and diesel fuel. This has been her only source of income to support and educate her children. It has not been easy for her to shoulder the entire responsibility for her family. However, her love for her children is what drives her forward from day to day. Now her elder son helps her with the business.

Today Shamigul is requesting a loan of 2200 Somoni ($650 USD) that will be used to increase her goods. She has a good supply of orders for her fuels. She promises to return this amount in 12 months. The well-being of this brave woman’s family is in your hands. Help them by contributing to the growth of her business, and they will sincerely thank you.
