A loan of $750 helped to buy an embroidery machine.

Kholida's story

This motivated and capable woman has been developing her business of sewing women's clothing for over five years. Her name is Kholida. She is 30 years old, married, and has three children. Her husband earns a small salary and he isn't in a position to fully provide for the family. Kholida must meet her own expenses, as well as provide clothing and schooling for the children.

In order to develop her business and earn a larger income, Kholida works very hard. Because of her good service, she has a large client base. However, many of her competitors have embroidery machines and many people prefer seamstresses who are able to embroider. If Kholida doesn't also buy an embroidery machine and offer this service, she will lose all her clients. She needs an embroidery machine, but her income isn't enough for her to buy one. She is requesting a loan of 3,500 somoni (TJS) to buy an embroidery machine. She is relying on you and your kindness.
