A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a sewing machine to sew traditional dresses.

Dilafruz's story

Dilafruz is an experienced dressmaker who creates beautiful traditional Tajik dresses. She is 35 years old, married, and raising four children. Her children (Dilorom, Marhabo, Mavlyuda and Makhlyo) are still minors.

Dilafruz started her business five years ago, in order to provide her family with all the necessities of life. She owns a sewing studio in the center of town, and thanks to the quality of her service, she enjoys a large number of customers. Her customers are fashionable women who are sometimes difficult to satisfy, but Dilafruz knows how to cope with their whims.

Although Dilafruz needs a new sewing machine, her income doesn't allow her to make this purchase. She is therefore requesting a loan of $1,500 to buy a new sewing machine. She is relying on you and is looking forward to your kindness.
