Mahbuba's story

Makhbuba lives in Muminobod. She is 34, and has two children, a son and a daughter. She is raising the children by herself. Makhbuba is an excellent seamstress. She has a lot of experience in this field of work, but she hasn't done any sewing work for several years. Her children were small, and she didn't have any time to sit down and do any sewing or embroidery. Now Makhbuba is ready to resume her favorite activity and make dresses for sale, as well as create new types of dresses. To do this she needs a new, upgraded sewing machine that is quick and easy to set up and operate. With this goal in mind, she has requested a loan in the amount of 1500 US dollars. She awaits your kind assistance.

Makhbuba has to work a lot to provide for her children. Currently she takes care of livestock on her home property. She is going to sell the animals for an decent price.
