A loan helped to buy multicoloured thread and fabric for "gulduzi" embroidery.


Marjona's story

Marjona is a skilled craftswoman and gold embroiderer. She is 48 years old. She has been working as an embroiderer for 6 years. She loves her craft and can't imagine working in any other profession.

All Marjona's work is beautiful, so her skills are always in demand. She works from her home in the city of Kulob, where she lives with her husband and their child. Her husband works for the state.

Now Marjona is asking for a loan to buy fabric and thread for gold embroidery. Thanks to the loan she will be able to keep her business going and take on more orders.
