Sitora's story

This woman from the ancient city of Isfara has a great talent for sewing. She has the beautiful name of Sitora and is 42 years old. Despite her age, she is very independent, goal-oriented, and believes in herself. Sitora has a husband and four children. These days her husband lives far from home for work. For three years she has been sewing for herself and close relatives. Because this has gone well for her and she has design skills, Sitora is preparing to sew professionally. By making her own money, she hopes to be able to further her education. In order to increase her business, she needs a loan to purchase a digital sewing machine. Sitora is turning to you for help and believes that you will not ignore her. With the remaining funds, she plans to do partial renovations on her home.
