A loan of $1,475 helps to buy a sewing machine and other necessary sewing supplies.


Guldastai's story

Guldastai lives in the Vose region. She is 21 years old. She is not married yet and lives with her parents. Guldastai had a dream to learn how to tailor and sew women's clothing. Thanks to her mother, she learned this craft and would now like to start her own sewing business. However, to start her business she needs to buy a new sewing machine. Due to a lack of money, Guldastai applied for a loan, which she intends to use to buy a digital sewing machine, as well as other necessary sewing supplies.

Thanks to the loan, she will have a job and a stable income, which will help improve the financial situation of her large family. Only you can support Guldastai and she puts her faith in you.
