A loan of $600 helped to increase inventory in her kitchen store.


Makhsudakhon's story

Makhsudakhon U. is a 60-year-old woman. She is a widow and has two adult children. She has survived despite difficult circumstances thanks to her optimism, and she strives above all to care for her children. Makhsudakhon is a teacher, but when her husband passed away she decided to run her own business so as to be able to cover all the expenses of her family. She rented a small store on the main street of her neighborhood and stocked it with kitchen inventory. She started out 10 years ago with only $20 in capital. Gradually she expanded her business, and currently she has about $5,000 in capital. Now Makhsudakhon feels that with more working capital the shop could generate more income, so she is asking for a loan of 2000 Somoni ($600) to jump-start the business and raise the family's standard of living. She promises to repay the loan within 6 months.
