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

A loan helped to buy necessary merchandise in order to make more men’s national coats (called chapans).

Feruza's story

Feruza is married and has two children. She works and supports her children herself. Her business is her only source of income. She makes traditional men’s chapans (a padded quilted coat). She runs the business by herself, and it is not easy.

She wants to improve her family's living conditions and provide her children with a good education so that they can provide for themselves and their families in the future. She would like to obtain a loan to replenish her working capital and purchase more material merchandise to make chapans.

Feruza looks forward to receiving your assistance and thanks you all in advance.
