Ilmije's story

Ilmije is 52 years old. She is a married and a mother of 4 children. She works from her home by hand sewing dallama – a traditional long vest worn by women mostly during wedding ceremonies. This is a must wear in the local tradition and Ilmije has many customers asking for her vests.

Ilmije has been working this job for over 17 years and has helped provide for her family. Now with the wedding season approaching, Ilmije needs to be prepared to work. She has requested a loan to buy fabric, gold thread and some other decorations to make dallama and meet client demands.

This loan will help Ilmije to continue to provide and also pay for her youngest's tuition. She is thankful for the help!
