A loan of $2,300 helped to build a house.


Nasiba's story

Nasiba is a young married woman and a mother of three children. Prior to the marriage, she was studying to be a jewelry maker and is now involved in a fine jewelry business. She makes women's national jewelry from gold with unusual designs. Nasiba sells her goods at a market and primarily makes the jewelry to-order. She has a large catalog of samples for every taste. She does not yet have apprentices because she has a small child and would not have time for apprentices. In the future, Nasiba plans to open her own shop and teach her trade to young women. She has been partnering with us since 2010 and previously obtained a loan to purchase scrap to make her jewelry. This is now her second time obtaining financing from us, and this is another loan to be used for household buildings. Because Nasiba's husband is currently working outside the city limits, and their house construction has began, Nasiba needs our loan.
