Sobirai's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy an embroidery sewing machine to improve the quality of her work.
Sobirai is a 23-year-old native of the Temurmalik district. She is married, but does not have children yet. Sobirai's husband works in agriculture and is a farmer. Sobirai has been sewing women's dresses and embroidering traditional Tajik dresses for women for two years; this embroidery is called gulduzi. She sews traditional Tajik embroidery on dresses. Wearing traditional Tajik dresses with embroidery is currently in fashion, and therefore Sobirai wants to improve her sewing with the help of an embroidery machine. She is turning to you for support and thanks you in advance.
