Ochakhon's story

This wonderful woman in the photo is Ochakhon. She is 67 years old and lives in Isfara, Tajikistan. She is married and has three adult children.

Despite her age, Ochakhon is a very active woman. She has been engaged in sewing for 37 years. She loves to create new and unusual things. This talented specialist sews different kind of national clothes, scarves and decoration blankets. She uses unusual and bright embroidery in her products and many of them sell out very fast.

Ochakhon is a returning borrower and has a positive credit history. She is asking for a loan with Kiva’s partner IMON for buying material and threads. It will allow her to expand her range of items and improve her business.

Ochakhon hopes that you will support her in this issue and is thankful in advance.

This loan is special because:

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