Ganchyna's story

This is Ganchyna. She is 26 years old and lives together with her three children in Gissar. Currently her husband is a migrant worker in the Russian Federation.

Ganchyna works in the service profession. She takes orders to cut and sew traditional dresses. She has worked in this area for a period of more than 12 years.

Currently Ganchyna would like to try training an apprentice. This is something new to her. However, without support she cannot realize her plans.

With the loan amount Ganchyna plans to purchase a digital sewing machine and start training apprentices. She depends on you, and extends her gratitude in advance for your understanding.
