Mohsafar's story

Mohsafar is a woman who is very experienced in sewing women's clothing. She is 54 years old and is married with two children at home. Her husband is retired and receives a small pension which is not enough to support the family. With the goal of providing for her family's needs, Mohsafar started a business 39 years ago sewing women's clothes. She receives orders in her own home. Many of her clients are her neighbors and women who live near her region. She tries to give the highest level of service so as to attract many clients. Thanks to her good service, she has a wide range of clients. She uses the income from her business to support her family. This year she had planned to renovate her home, but she was not able to save enough money for the repairs. Her home is in an unsafe state and she urgently needs to make repairs on it. With this renovation as the goal, Mohsafar is asking for a loan of 1,000 somoni to buy building materials like cement and paint. She is counting on you and your kindness.
