Sairam's story

Her name is Sairam. She is 45 years old. Sairam lives in Khuroson. She is a kind and hardworking woman. Sairam is married and is the mother of five children. Her husband is working abroad. For more than 10 years, Sairam has been sewing women's clothing. For her, the time spent at the sewing machine is most enjoyable. It is convenient for her to sew at home.

Her current sewing machine will not perform its functions as well as before. Sairam decided to buy a new sewing machine to improve the work process. Sairam believes that you can help her buy a new sewing machine, and she will create good working conditions.
