Sa'bagul's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy a larger quantity of fabrics, cotton, threads and other materials needed for sewing.
Sa'bagul is a married 39-year-old woman. She has four children - three sons and one daughter. Sa'bagul's husband works at a road-construction firm with the Chinese. Sa'bagul has been involved in sewing kurpa and kurpachas for many years. "Kurpa" and "kurpacha" are cotton-filled mattresses. "Kurpa" is sewn in a standard square size and used as a blanket. Kurpacha is a long mattress used as a couch. When Sa'bagul starts to sew, she calms her nerves and gets fulfillment from her work. Now is the time of cold weather, and Sa'bagul has more work during this season and wants to buy a larger quantity of fabric, materials, cotton, threads and other things to sew and sell more kurpa and kurpacha.
