A loan of $750 helped to buy a new sewing machine.


Firuza's story

Firuza is a young 38 year-old woman. She is married and has three children. She was not able to get into a university after completing school due to financial difficulties. But Firuza has had a love for sewing since childhood. She liked very much to observe how her grandmother sewed national dresses. And when Firuza grew up, her grandmother gave her her sewing machine. Gradually, Firuza learned how to sew national dresses. Now she is a professional seamstress. She has a lot of clients. This is how Firuza earns her living now. Firuza's sewing machine has gotten old and often breaks down. This is why she wants to buy a new sewing machine, but she does not have enough money to buy one. Hence, Firuza decided to come to the Arvand organization for a loan. She hopes very much that Arvand will help her and offer financial support.
