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

A loan helped to purchase more fabric to develop her business and increase her income.

Kholida's story

Kholida is a kind and polite 50-year-old woman. She is married and is a careful mother of her three children.

She has been engaged in embroidering traditional dresses for women, and national mattresses called “Kurpacha”. She also deals with crochet. Kholida is grateful to her mother, who taught her this activity. She has already been engaged in this activity for four years.

She wants to apply for a loan to purchase more fabric and colored thread to develop her business and increase her income.

Kholida is a returning borrower and has a positive credit history. She is asking for a loan for the third time through Kiva’s field partner. She awaits your support.
