Shoira's story

Shoira is married and has two children. The older child is five years old, and the younger is three. Her husband is a migrant laborer. Her husband's parents are dependent on them. Shoira's love of sewing began in childhood. It is a profession which was passed on to her by her mother. In the past she sewed for her own enjoyment and needs, but after marrying and facing serious financial problems in the family she decided to help her husband who last sent her money four months ago. Her husband is currently unemployed and unable to send his wife money. She decided to sew seriously not just for herself but to order. After finding out about classes for women run by NABWT (National Association of Business Women of Tajikistan) in cooperation with IMON International, Shoira became an active participant and after learning the needed information, submitted an application for a loan. She is a very confident and skillful woman, and able to reach her stated goals. Shoira would like to buy a sewing machine and the supplies needed for sewing traditional and European dresses. She very much hopes for your kindness and help.
