Makhfirat's story

Makhfirat lives in Gissar. She is 36, divorced, and is raising two children. Over the past five years Makhfirat has been working as a midwife in the district's central hospital. Since her small income is not enough to provide for her family's needs, she would like to improve the family's finances by opening a sewing business. Makhfirat knows how to make traditional dresses. She is requesting a loan to buy a sewing machine and fabric. With the income, Makhfirat plans to repair her house, as well as gradually put away money to pay for her son's college.
