Tahmina's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to purchase some necessary sewing supplies and a modern sewing machine for embroidering dresses.


Tahmina's story

Tahmina, 38, is married and has four children. Her husband is a carpenter whose income is not sufficient to feed the family. So Tahmina works hard at farming to earn the family more income. In the past, she has grown onions and cucumbers from which she has made a good profit.

Tahmina also is a skilled seamstress and has been working in this field for over 15 years. Generally, she sews and embroiders women's dresses in the Tajik national style.

She is asking for a loan from Kiva's partner IMON to purchase some necessary sewing supplies and a modern sewing machine for embroidering dresses.

She depends on your help and charity.
