Ziyorat's story

Ziyorat is a 49-year-old married woman from the Gissar district. She is a purposeful and energetic woman. Her husband works in Russia and therefore Ziyorat raised her only son alone. She decided to start a new business and improve the family’s financial situation. Ziyorat knows how to sew and tailor women's dresses. She is now going to use this skill in the professional field. However, to achieve Ziyorat’s goal, she is lacking a certain amount of money. She is applying for a loan to buy a computerized sewing machine. She hopes for your responsiveness.
