Safargul's story

Safargul lives in Nurek, which is located 70 kilometers to the south-east of the capital of Tajikistan, Dushanbe. She's a 54-year-old widowed woman who has raised four children. She lives with her youngest daughter who attends school. The rest of her children have families of their own.

Safargul has 23 years of experience working as a seamstress. She makes national-themed blankets and accepts orders at her home. She's asking for a loan in order to purchase some cloth and a sewing machine so that she can expand and improve her work process.
