Arina's story

Arina K. is 47 years old, and she lives alone. She has been selling spices at a market for several years. She decided to increase the assortment of her inventory and start selling fragrances. In the same shop, Arina has a business partner, who in addition to selling spices, is also in a business of selling livestock. He was the one who told her about MicroInvest and suggested her to obtain a loan for new livestock business. She came to MicroInvest and got a loan; however, she doesn't have any space for livestock. For this reason, her partner, Nasim-aka, agreed to keep and take care of the livestock as long as Arina pays him a fee.
