A loan of $2,500 helped to purchase a new modernized sewing machine and make repairs at home.


Nargis's story

Nargis is a married woman with a higher education in accounting. She is 48 years old. She has a husband, four sons and one daughter. Currently, her husband and sons are working in Russia, and Nargis lives in the city of Vahdat with her daughter. Nargis is a skilled worker. She has been earning a living by providing seamstress services for 20 years. She sews women's dresses to order and makes beautiful embroideries on them. Her services are always in demand because the majority of women prefer to purchase fabrics and have dresses custom-made for them. Now Nargis is planning to expand her business and purchase a new modernized sewing machine, with the help of which her work process would improve. She wants to use the rest of the loan money to make repairs at home in order to prepare for the winter cold. She really needs the loan and promises to repay it on-time from her sewing business and money transfers from her husband.
