Bimuborak B. has been engaged in business for over 5 years. Her business is to sew national Tadjik mattresses. Her business is located in the service center Navruz. Bimuborak with her two business partners rented one room for their activity 5 years ago.

The process of making mattresses includes four steps: sewing fabric into a long sack, spreading it out on the preparing cotton, putting cotton in the long sack and sewing it with stitch (2 cm) by hand. On one mattress they do 6 or 8 lines of stitches. Making one mattress requires one day. All of them make their mattress separately of each other. Then they give their products to the market for sale.
