Barno's story

Barno is 53 years old. She is a very kind and hardworking woman. Barno has a difficult life since her husband died young and she was left alone with a young child. All her life, she worked hard so that her child was not left without food or education.

She worked for more than 30 years in a kindergarten. She is a much-loved nurse in the kindergarten and all her colleagues respected her.

Barno is still a skillful woman and she knows how to sew national mattresses called "kurpacha". In order to generate additional income, she decided to start a business sewing and selling "kurpacha". To that end, she took a course "Bring It On" organized by the Association of Business Women and received a certificate. She got a lot of information from this course. She is now confident in her plan. She will be selling her goods in the local market, and her mother will help her in doing business.

She is requesting a loan of 5,000 Somoni to buy fabric for sewing "kurpacha" in order to establish a new business. She is awaiting your kindness.
