Gulbahor K. , a very responsible and hard working woman, is married and has four adorable children. Twenty-six years ago, having worked in a garment factory near her home and knowing a great deal about making clothing, she opened a small seamstress shop in her house, thereby helping her husband support the family. In time, she gained customers and a good reputation for her work, the business growing to the point where she now has four sewing machines and employs three workers. On average she sews two to three dresses a day, and her elder daughter assists her with the business.

Gulbahor’s children are all studying at school and over the next year two of her sons are planning to enter University. For that reason she needs to continue growing her business, so she is requesting a loan of $1000 to buy more fabrics to increase her production and meet customer demand. She commits to repay the loan in 12 months.

Help this family improve their quality of life by contributing to the growth of Gulbahor’s business. They will sincerely thank you for your generosity.
