A loan of $2,950 helped to buy jewelers' tools to start a business.


Rahmatjon's story

Rahmatjon is an experienced jeweler who lives in the city of Dushanbe. He is 30 years old and a family man. Rahmatjon has worked for many years creating and repairing gold and silver jewelry, and now he has enough experience to start his own business. Rahmatjon plans to take custom orders and to make jewelry repairs. He has already made agreements with vendors at the market to sell his jewelry pieces. Rahmatjon has capital in the form of a work desk, tools, and his savings, but he will also need a jewelry machine to manufacture his creations before he can open his own store. Unfortunately he does not have enough money to buy this machine because it is very expensive, so he must take out a loan before he can start his business. Rahmatjon hopes very much for support.
