but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Meriniso's story

The 56-year old Meriniso is a talented woman who lives in the provincial town of Kulob. A widow with no children, she lives with her sister. Meriniso is an artist who embroiders beautiful, traditionally Tajik designs on blankets and pillows for new brides. Her services are in demand, because every young woman gathers together a dowry before marriage, which is supposed to include, in addition to clothing and jewelry, traditional Tajik blankets and pillows. Meriniso really loves her work, since it brings her into contact with various people every day and helps every girl to have the very best dowry.

At this time, Meriniso has a lot of orders on hand and needs to buy the necessary fabric and thread. That is why she is requesting a loan, because her own funds will not stretch to that. Meriniso is relying on your support and is grateful to you in advance for your understanding.
