Shamsiya's story

The capable, intelligent woman in the photograph is named Shamsiya. She is 36 years old. She lives and works in the Khuroson area. Shamsiya has two children. Both of her children are in school. Shamsiya’s husband is a farmer. He is involved in crop and livestock production.

Shamsiya herself is a seamstress. She has offered sewing services for more than five years. Shamsiya primarily sews and embroiders women’s traditional dresses. She is a professional in her field. Shamsiya has long dreamed of buying a modernized sewing machine in order to improve her working conditions. Due to a lack of funds, however, she cannot carry out her plans. Ultimately Shamsiya decided to get a loan. She is certain that Kiva’s lenders will support her intention to expand her labor of love.
