Orosta's story

Orosta is a talented, ambitious, and hardworking woman with great potential. She was born in 1982 in Isfara, Tajikistan. She is married and lives with her husband in love and harmony. Also, she financially helps her parents. There are few jobs, and she has to work very well to keep her job and earn much money.

Orosta is engaged in sewing national dresses and different clothes. She does her job efficiently and beautifully. She creates each pattern with love and awe in her heart. She has many clients who trust her. She gives considerable attention to national ornaments and knows all the subtleties of her work. She wants to expand her business so that more people can learn about the national art of sewing, and that new interested clients will appear. But she does not have enough funds to realize her efforts.

Orosta is a returning borrower and has a positive credit history. She is asking for a loan with Kiva’s partner IMON for the third time. This loan will help her to purchase new sewing machines, expand her business, find new clients, and increase her profits. She is waiting for your help with great enthusiasm.


This loan is special because:

It allows Tajik artisans to support their families and carry on important handicraft traditions.
