Gulnora's story

Gulnora is a skilled seamstress, having begun sewing in her childhood. She sews beautiful national dresses for women. She also skillfully embroiders beads and decorative flowers that she uses to adorn her dresses. Her talent is masterful. As a youth, she took lessons from a skilled artisan. There, she learned all the details of her craft. As Gulnora herself has said, her teacher was very demanding but managed to pass along her skills and mold her into the talent she is today. When Gulnora started her family and had three children, the need for income increased and she decided to open her own shop. Six years ago, she and a few of her seamstress friends rented a space near a market. initially, Gulnora used a sewing machine that she rented with the space. But she later decided she wanted to buy a new sewing machine for herself. For the means to do so, she turned to Arvand. With their support, she did just that. Now, with the increasing needs of her family, she wants to buy her own embroidery machine. With this machine, her small business will be able to survive and she will be able to continue to offer her services to a larger number of clients. This will allow her to earn enough money for her family and her children's education. She hopes that this loan from Arvand will help her advance closer to her goals and to move past this difficult time.
