Muhabbat's story

Muhabbat is 48 years old. She is married, her husband is a migrant worker in Russia and she is raising 4 children. Muhabbat does not have a regular job and has been sewing traditional robes at home for several years. Her daughter helps her. Muhabbat purchases fabric and cotton for padding and then sews at home. It takes her one to three days to sew one robe depending on the order. The profits from her investment constitute 25-30% and the earnings are spent on family expenses. Muhabbat plans to purchase fabric and this is why she has applied for a loan.
