Emine's story

Emine was born in Diyarbakır in 1977. She is married and a mother of 4 children. She became a great role model for her children by being financially independent with microcredit.

After her childhood in the village, she got married and settled in Diyarbakır. She tried to hold on to a new life in a city she never knew.

Since Emine’s husband was working in construction, her family’s financial situation was not very good. After their children were born, they went through very difficult times. Sometimes they didn’t even have food at home.

With no education, Emine could not find a job. She knew how to make handicrafts, however she had no capital. Just at this time, she was introduced to the microfinance system.

With her first microcredit, she started to embroider at home. Later, she managed to increase the number of available materials.

Emine is planning to buy a new sewing machine with her Kiva loan.
