A loan helped to buy more fabrics for her trousseau sales.

Serap's story

Serap is a 37-year-old married woman with two children living in Diyarbakır. Serap wanted to work, however, being a housewife and taking care of her small children on her own was exhausting for her, and no one from her family helped her. Serap says learning about microcredit was a turning point in her life.

With her first microcredit loan in 2008, Serap started making handmade pieces for trousseaux. After a while, Serap was able to buy herself a new sewing machine.

Serap is planning to buy more fabrics for trousseaux in order to keep up with the demands and generate more profit. She is thankful for the help.
