Zaynura's story

Zaynura is a very kind and determined woman. She is also very hardworking and motivated. However, this beautiful woman has had a difficult life. Her husband left her and her daughter and married another woman. Zaynura was thrown out of her house and had to move back to her parents' with her young daughter. Her parents helped her with everything.

For a few years now, Zaynura has been working as a teacher at the local high school. She receives a small salary, which is not enough to provide for herself and her daughter. Moreover, her parents are retired, and they can no longer help their daughter as they used to do. However, Zaynura knows how to weave carpets, a craft she learned from her grandmother. Her plan is to turn this craft into a business, and to make some money out of it.

With this goal in mind, Zaynura has taken a course entitled "Achieving success", organized by the Association of Business Women, and she has earned a certificate. This course has been very informative and Zaynura is now requesting a loan of 1,000 somoni to purchase the necessary supplies to weave carpets and start her new business. She is relying on your kindness.
