Orzigul is married and has one adult child. Her husband is a worker and his income is small. She tries to do all the best for her child. She sews wonderful womens' dresses which can’t be sewn by just any seamstress.

Orzigul decided to start her own business and to do this she studied a course called " To Get Ahead" at a women's organization. From this course, she got enough skills about business, but her sewing machine is an old design. She is asking for a loan of 1,000 Tajikistan Somonis (TJS) to buy a new sewing machine for starting her new business. She awaits your support.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of IMON International's startup loan program called Sarchashma ("spring" in the local language). Sarchashma loans are tailored to women who have feasible business ideas but lack the funds to get started. In addition to credit, these women also receive special training from the National Association of Business Women of Tajikistan to develop business plans. They also have the opportunity to participate in IMON's "Woman Entrepreneur, Get Ahead" program, a three-day intensive training course. By funding this loan, you are supporting borrowers who have limited options to start and grow small businesses. This has the potential to alleviate the effects of poverty, significantly improving borrowers' incomes and their families' quality of life.
