Rahima's story

This is Rahima, an inhabitant of the city of Dushanbe. She is 37 years old. A year ago she and her husband decided to go into retail business. They sell groceries. Their store is located right at the market, where there are always crowds. Thanks to the good location of their store, their goods do not remain on the shelves for the long time, but get sold out quickly. Rahima decide to expand her business and increase the selection of goods in her store thanks to her loan. Rahima and her husband have two sons. They would like to ensure that their sons get a good education, and they work very hard for a better future for their children. They hope that their request for financial support to develop their business will be granted.
