Muharramhon's Group's story

Muharramhon is the leader of this group. She is 28 and married to a builder, whose monthly salary is 5000 soms. In order to earn money, Muharramhon provides sewing services. Eleven years ago her parents presented her with a sewing machine and since that time she has been sewing dresses. In the beginning she was working at home, but then when the number of clients increased, Muharramhon started to teach sewing to more girls. Those girls help her in running the business.

At the moment they rent a place in the Central Market and take orders for sewing dresses there. Muharramhon’s monthly profit is 4800 soms. She applied for the loan because she needs additional funds for purchasing fabrics and materials. She also wants to use some part of the loan on the purchase of a washing machine. In the future, Muharramhon wants to expand her business and wishes to open her own store.
