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

A loan helped to buy a multi-function sewing machine.

Shukrona's story

Shukrona is 19 years old and a master seamstress who loves to sew and cut. For the last three years she has worked in her mother's business but she wants to earn more money and help her parents provide for their family. Shukrona can do this by speeding up her work processes because this will increase her income. To make this possible, she needs a new multi-function sewing machine and other accessories. She is requesting a loan to make the purchase possible because she does not have enough money on hand to do it. Shukrona thanks Kiva lenders for their support.
