Mahbuba's story

Mahbuba is 45 years old. She is married and raising three children. Her husband has a taxi service for local residents. Mahbuba is a very competent woman. Thanks to her parents, she graduated and for more than ten years has been working at a school in her region as a primary school teacher. She loves her profession and does her work with pleasure, but she gets a small salary which is not enough to support a family.

In order to learn sewing and cutting, over the summer she took a course and learned how to sew women's national dresses. She plans to organize her own business sewing women's clothing, because there is great demand. In her region, there are few dressmakers and all the women go to dressmakers in the city to sew their dresses.

She is requesting a loan of 1,000 Somoni to buy a sewing machine. She is awaiting and hoping for your kindness. This loan will help her to organize the business and thus improve her living conditions.
