Saltanat is married and has 2 children who are 8 and 11 year old. She always wanted to provide them with a good education and since her husband’s income is not enough to provide the family with a good quality of life, Saltanat decided to start a new business sewing national women’s dresses in order to generate income with which she can contribute to her home’s finances. She had been busy with animal husbandry but it was bringing a small income which is why Saltanat wants to change her business. She took the course ‘To get ahead’ at a women's organization and got enough skills for the new business. She is asking for a loan of 5700 somoni to buy a new sewing machine to start her new business. She awaits your support.
