Sadagat and her family live in the Absheron region.

Sadagat learned this sewing business from her neighbor, who saw that Sadagat had many children and advised her to make clothing for them herself in order not to spend a lot on it. Sadagat decided to learn how to sew from her neighbor. At the beginning, she only made clothing for her children, but then once others saw how nice and interesting her clothing was, they started asking her to sew for them too. So Sadagat decided to become a seamstress. She likes to create new things in her work. Now she needs 2000 AZN in order to purchase a new sewing machine.
