A loan helped to buy a new sewing machine.


Mehriniso's story

Mehriniso has dreamed of fashion design since her childhood. She sewed, creating different dresses for herself and her family and experimenting with different fabrics. However, she started sewing professionally only later, when she was 40. But this hasn't stopped her from being one of the leading seamstresses. Today Mehriniso is well-known in her village as the Number 1 seamstress. She constantly follows fashion and tries to sew them. Many of her clients like her original work. Now she has thought up several styles which must be sewn with the help of a new kind of sewing machine. Because she's been having trouble with her current sewing machine, Mehriniso wants to buy a new sewing machine. She needs your help because her business has been hindered.
