Zamira's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a sewing machine so she can practice a craft she has learned since she was a teenager and hopefully start her own business.

Zamira's story

Zamira was born into a family where all of the females learned and practiced sewing. She got married when she was only 18 years old in a village where the main activity was agriculture and has not had the possibility of practicing this craft until now.

She has come to Kiva lenders to support a loan to buy a sewing machine. "I will at least repair my families' clothes and in the future I would probably regain all the learned skills and maybe even make an income by sewing for the villagers here!"-said she hopefully during the interview.
