Saodat's story

Saodat is 32 years old. She has been running her clothes-sewing business for six years. She is running her business alone. She was taught by her mother. She has a lot of satisfied customers.

Saodat has been sewing clothes with her sewing machine, but now she needs a new, modern sewing machine. She lacks the financial ability to buy a new sewing machine as well as key supplies such as fabric, thread, elastic, and needles. She intends to teach girls with this profession.

Saodat intends to use the loan and expand her business. She is a returning client and has a positive credit history. She is asking for a loan for the second time through Kiva’s field partner IMON. She is asking for a loan of 5,000 (TJS) for this goal. She awaits your support and kindness.


This loan is special because:

It supports the well being of women and their families.
