A loan helped to buy a digital sewing machine and fabric.


Ibodat's story

Ibodat is 23 years old. She is a smart and hardworking young woman, living in the Khuroson district in southern Tajikistan. Ibodat does what she loves: sewing women's dresses to order. She inherited this trade from her mother. However, she began her sewing business 4 years ago. Her mother-in-law, who lives with Ibodat in her home, helps her with this work.

Right now, Ibodat wants to expand her sewing business and buy another sewing machine, as well as the necessary amount of fabric. The loan will help her take in more orders and increase her work's profitability. In the future she plans to grow even more and open her own sewing factory. Help Ibodat make her plans a reality.
