Kholmo's story

Kholmo is a friendly and honest woman. She lives in Hamadoni district. For 18 years she has worked at school as a teacher. She is one of the best teachers of the district. Her husband is a teacher, too. She has four sons. They are very well-mannered and kind boys.

Kholmo learned sewing with help from her friend. She wants to buy a sewing machine and start her new activity. Currently in Tajikistan, this business is very profitable. But unfortunately, her salary is not enough to purchase a sewing machine. For this reason, she applied for a loan. Kholmo likes this work and believes that in this activity, she will achieves success. She will be able to start her business and increase her income.

Your support is very important to her.
