Dilorom is a single young woman of 27 years. She lives with her father and her mother in the city of Kulob. Dilorom knows how to sew and how to tailor. From a skilled dressmaker, she learned how to sew women's traditional national dresses. Now that she has mastered this profession, she wishes to apply her skills to her own business; for this, she needs a sewing machine. Dilorom is asking for a loan to purchase a modern, computerized sewing machine to start her business. She will be taking orders at her house and she is planning to sew two dresses per day. This is a very profitable business because there is always a high demand for these services.
