Sharofat's story

Sharofat works as a school teacher. She has taught for over twenty years. Sharofat raised her six children well. Her sons are working abroad, and her daughter got married. They all help their mother. Her husband is also a teacher. He works at the Technological University of Hamadoni. Sharofat's children are grown, and she has a lot of free time. She is not going to spend this time idly, so she is taking out a loan to buy a sewing machine. Sharofat has a sewing machine that was manufactured in the USSR, but it is not suitable for professional use. When she gets a sewing machine, she wants to use all of her free time sewing traditional dresses. She is going to start sewing and embroidering dresses.
