A loan helped to purchase fabric and thread to expand her business.


Gulbarg's story

Gulbarg, a married woman of 45, is a master tailor. She lives with her husband and two children in the city of Kulob. She has been making her own living as a tailor for more than four years now. In addition to the traditional Tajik dresses that she sews to order, Gulbarg also decorates fabrics with the traditional popur embroidery.

With the arrival of summer, Gulbarg has received a lot of orders. This has prompted her to expand her business, buying special fabric and thread. Unfortunately, she lacks the funds to make those purchases. Gulbarg is really in need of your support.
