A loan of $975 helps to buy a sewing machine and sewing supplies.


Shahnozai's story

Shashnozai is a married woman. She is 29 years old. She lives in the Vose region. She has 4 children. Her husband is a migrant worker in Russia because he was unable to find suitable work in his home country.

Shahnozai is a calm and nimble woman. Five months ago she learned to sew and tailor women's clothing. Shahnozai likes her work. Now Shahnozai wants to start her own business, but she does not have the funds to buy a digital sewing machine, as well as other necessary sewing supplies. That is why she applied for a loan. Only you can support Shahnozai and she puts her faith in you. Thanks to the loan she will have a job and a stable income, which will help improve her family's financial situation.
