Dilshoda's story

Dilshoda is 26 years old, married, and has 3 children. Her husband is a businessman, but he does not support his wife. Dilshoda always tries to cope with her problems on her own. She is very grateful to her parents for giving her the opportunity to learn how to sew from a seamstress. Now she sews beautiful dresses and has her own clients. For the purpose of providing her family with all the necessities, 3 years ago she started her own business. Prior to that, she had been a migrant worker in the Russian Federation but was unable to find acceptable work. Dilshoda currently works from home sewing dresses, and thanks to her good service, she has a good number of clients. These clients are women of good taste who are very particular and can be difficult to please, but Dilshoda easily manages to satisfy their demands. She has big plans for the future. She wants to open her own sewing studio and work with new designs and styles. She needs a new sewing machine, but her income is not sufficient for her to be able to afford one. Dilshoda is seeking a loan of 2,500 Tajikistan Somoni to buy a new sewing machine. Her hopes are on you and your kindness.
