Ziyodajon's story

Ziyodajon is a very hard-working and determined woman. She began sewing at an early age. After finishing school for the day, she used to sew dresses for girls and women of her village. When she graduated from high school, she was unable to attend university because her parents did not have the financial means to pay for her studies, so she was left without post-secondary education. After getting married, she sewed dresses for her female relatives and in-laws free of charge. As she has completed the course "Get Ahead" which was organised by the Association of Businesswomen, she now wants to turn her skills into a business. She will provide sewing services out of her home to local citizens, and her sister-in-law will assist her in running the business. Ziyodajon is seeking a loan of 2,000 US dollars to buy a sewing machine. She is waiting for your kindness.
