Feruza's story

Feruza is a 35 year old master embroiderer from Spitamen region of Tajikistan. She embroiders traditional cushions and other items, a skill she learned from her mother before she was married. Embroidery is time consuming and precise work and requires complete dedication. But to Feruza, a woman without her craft is like a tree without fruit. She puts all her love and talent into her embroidery, in order to produce results of highest skill level. Feruza embroiders for herself, her family and many local clients. She spends most of her time embroidering and raising her child, but she manages her time well. Feruza is asking for this loan in order to buy more fabric and embroidery supplies for her business.
