Shodigul's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase a new sewing machine.
Shodigul is a young woman, aged 29. She married young and already has three children. She and her husband are raising the three children. Her sons are 12 and 11 and her little daughter is 4. Shodigul did not used to work and watched the children, but she has a lot of time and is now able to sew. She will combine business and pleasure. She loves to cut and sew women's clothing. She has a sewing machine but it is old and does not work well. She needs to take out a loan to buy a modern sewing machine. She will take orders for clothing and use this income to repay the loan.
