S. Muhiba describes herself as a hard-working, enterprising and happy married mother of two children. Her husband is a laborer. She decided to start a tailoring business to help him with household expenses. She wanted her children to get an education and that wasn't possible on her husband's salary alone. She started by helping a woman who ran a tailoring shop. After she learned the business well, she installed a small shop in her home. During the last 20 years, the business has gone very well and grown.

Now Muhiba is requesting a loan of 2500 Somoni ($750). She plans to use the loan to purchase modern materials so she can fulfill her customers' requests for national dresses. Muhiba and her family are very grateful for your support in helping this business grow and move ahead.
