Takhmina's story

Takhmina is an inhabitant of the town of Konibodom. She is 29 years old. She is divorced and lives with her two daughers at her parents' home. Takhmina has a specialized secondary education. By profession, she is a seamstress. For more than nine years, Takhmina has been sewing women's national dresses and gowns. She takes orders from her home. Since she sews beautifully, efficiently and quickly, she has many customers. At the same time, Takhmina teaches those who wish to know how to cut and sew at the training center. Currently, Takhmina wants to expand her activities. She is requesting a loan to purchase a computerized sewing machine and fabric, and also partly for home renovations. Takhmina knows how to do embroidery on dresses and now wants to put her skills into practice. Since dresses with embroidery are more expensive, Takhmina will generate more income from her activities that will allow her to improve living conditions and to promote her activities further. Thanks to the loan, Takhmina will expand her activities and repair her home.
