Gulbahor's story

Gulbahor is a 37 years old resident of the Yavan region. She works with hand embroidery (embroidered pillowcases) and other traditional products. She learned this from her mother before she got married. "To embroider is laborious work, and requires full dedication". Gulbahor says that a woman without crafts is like a tree without fruit. "And to skillfully learn a craft, you need to love what you do".

Gulbahor embroiders for herself, her relatives and her customers in the local community. Most of the time she is busy with embroidering and raising her child. She manages well with all of this. She requests a loan to purchase more fabric and other sewing accessories.
