Shahodat's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a computerized sewing machine to speed up the sewing process.

Shahodat's story

Shahodat is a young, 26-year-old resident of Dushanbe. She is divorced and has two small children, ages 6 and 4. Shahodat works hard to raise her kids and make sure they have enough. She has been working for the past 12 years, cutting and sewing ethnic women's clothing.

Shahodat has an old model of a sewing machine, and she has decided to buy a computerized one. It is very expensive, and Shahodat does not have enough money to purchase it. Please help fund Shahodat - she really needs your help.
