In order to earn additional money for the family budget, Tolkunai provides sewing services. She started this business six years ago with an initial investment of 3,000 KGS. She has applied for this loan because she needs money to purchase fabrics and materials for sewing. In the future, with the profits gained, she plans to purchase a new sewing machine.
