She participated in this course and obtained a lot of positives for herself. She obtained a certificate upon completing the course. Now, she is ready to start the business, but does not have money to buy fabric for sewing curtains. She will sew curtains and sell them and will also sew curtains to-order. Barno is requesting a loan in the amount of 700 somoni to purchase fabric. She awaits your kindness.
