Shukrona's story

Shukrona, aged 23, is a bright and hardworking woman. She is not married and still lives with her parents. She is also very skillful and possesses "golden hands" (she sews beautiful dresses).

Shukrona learned her trade from a seamstress. After practicing for several years, she is now confident that she can turn her skills into a business. With this goal in mind, she has taken a course sponsored by the Association of Business Women and entitled "Achieving Success", which taught her how to efficiently start a business.

Shukroma intends to offer sewing services from home. She is requesting a loan of 2,000 somoni for the purchase of a sewing machine and some fabrics, in order to start her new business.

She plans to use her income to buy all the necessities that she and her parents need. Thanks to her new business, she will be able to support herself. She is awaiting your kindness.
