Bibijon's story

Bibijon is an entrepreneur from the city of Dushanbe. She is in the retail business. She is 47 years old. In 2011, Bibijon received a premises just outside of a shop from her brother and she started her own grocery selling business. Bibijon sell such groceries as cupcakes, cookies, chocolate, candy, dried fruit, sausage, dairy products, rice, peas, buckwheat, and other household food products. Before buying merchandise, Bibijon always pays attention to its quality. She is mindful of her customers and her reputation. This is why Bibijon constantly has a lot of customers. Now Bibijon needs to bring in a new shipment of merchandise, however her personal savings are not enough for this purchase. This is why Bibijon requested a loan in the hope of financial support. This loan is truly necessary for her.
