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


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


Mavzuna's story

Mavzuna is a kind and polite 54-year-old woman. She is married and is a careful mother of her child.

For the past 20 years, she has been embroidering traditional dresses for women and men. Mavzuna is grateful to her mother who taught her this activity.

Now she wants to apply for a loan to purchase more fabric and colored thread to develop her business and increase her income. Mavzuna is a returning borrower and has a positive credit history. She is asking for a loan for the third time with Kiva’s partner IMON and hopes to have your support.
