Jumagul's story

Jumagul lives in a town by the name of Yavan. She is 62 years old. She is married and a mother of two sons. Her husband is a pensioner and is involved in animal husbandry. Jumagul had a dream to learn how to master sewing and cutting women's clothing in order to start a new business and earn a living. Thanks to her mother, she learned this trade and now wants to start her own business. However, to start her business, she needs to purchase a sewing machine. Due to a shortage in money, she requested a loan, with which she plans to buy an electronic sewing machine and other sewing supplies. You can support Jumagul, and she relies on You. With the help of this loan, she will have work and consistent income, which will allow her to improve her family's financial well-being.
