Nigina's story

Nigina is a hard working and intelligent woman. She is 29 years old, married, and has a child. Her husband is a migrant worker in Russia who sends money home. Nigina also works, as she has been a dressmaker for over six years. She works out of her home, sewing traditional dresses for women and children. She also sews curtains to order for houses and offices. She tries to please her clients with high quality tailoring of the clothes and curtains she makes. The money her husband sends is not enough to provide the family with everything it needs, so Nigina needs to expand her business and earn a higher income. She needs a new sewing machine, and also fabric for making more of the traditional dresses. She is asking for a 5000 TJS loan to buy a sewing machine and fabric. She promises that as an honest person, she will repay the loan on time. She appreciates your kindness.
