Nigora's story

Nigora, age 31, is married to a musician. She has a son who is five years old. She comes from a good family and is a conscientious and honest woman.

Nigora's parents were not in a position to give her a higher education. So she married after high school and started working right away because her husband earns a small salary which is not enough to provide for the family. In the beginning, Nigora worked as a waitress in a cafeteria. She did not enjoy this work; she had to force herself to do it and only worked for the money. After a period of two years, she started her own sewing business, making women's clothes. Thanks to the high quality of her services, she now has her own regular customers. Her customers are happy with her work because she is very neat and approachable.

Nigora would like to further develop her business, and to do so she needs a new sewing machine. She is requesting a loan of 3,000 somoni to buy a sewing machine. She is awaiting and relying on your kindness, and promises to repay her loan on time.
