Jamila's story

Jamila is 35 years old. She is from the Jilikul region. Jamila is married and has one child. Everyone in Jilikul knows her as one of the best teachers in the region. However, her salary was not enough to feed her family. Therefore, Jamila also works by sewing traditional dresses. Her clients are very satisfied because she sews very neatly.

In order to expand her business, Jamila needs to buy another sewing machine and material. Her main problem is that she doesn't have enough money. For this reason, she has applied for a loan, and promises to repay her loan on time.
