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


A loan helped to buy fabric and colored thread in order to develop her business and earn more money.


Kumriniso's story

Kumriniso lives in Konibodom. She is 65 years old. She is married and has two grown children. Kumriniso is involved in made-to-order sewing and embroidery out of her home. For about a year, Kumriniso’s seamstress service has been her primary source of income. She sews Suzani, the national textile [a decorative tribal textile made in Central Asian countries].

Thanks to the loan, the process of her activities and the quality of her tailored dresses will improve, which will increase her clients and her income. She plans to buy fabric and colored thread with the loan. She is really hoping for your understanding.
