Shodigul's story

Shodigul lives in Nurek, a town located 70 km southeast of Dushanbe, the capital. She is 29 years old and married. She has two young children: a son who is four and a daughter who is nine months old.

While her husband does odd jobs, Shodigul works as a seamstress. She has been involved in this activity for two years already. She sews traditional Tajik dresses for women, fulfilling orders at home.

She is requesting a loan to purchase a sewing machine, which will allow her to work faster and more efficiently.
