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

A loan helped to purchase a computerized sewing machine and fabric for embroidery.

Mohyra's story

Mohyra is a 37-year old woman of Shahrinav. She does embroidery by hand, making pillowcases with embroidered decorations and other traditional artisanal items. She has learned this trade from her mother as a young woman. Embroidery is painstaking work and requires full concentration. Mohyra says that a woman without trade is like a tree without fruit. And in order to master you trade you need to love your work.

Mohyra embroiders for herself, her relatives and her customers in the local community. She spends most of her time doing embroidery and raising her four children. It is a challenge for her to juggle everything.

Mohyra has applied for a loan to buy more fabrics to embroider as well as other sewing supplies.
