Matluba's story

Matluba is a very hardworking person. She was born in 1957 in the city of Isfara, Tajikistan. She is married and has four children. She has a high school education. She owns her own business. Matluba provides sewing services and sells women's clothes. Her husband works in a mill producing building materials. One of their sons is a migrant worker in Russia. Her daughter-in-law also helps out with the business. Matluba loves her work very much and wants to expand the business. She plans to buy fabrics to sew women's clothing, but she doesn't have sufficient capital. For this reason, she applied for a loan with Arvand. She has been working with Arvand since 2010 and believes that the organization has allowed her to expand the business during the time that they've worked together. She is grateful to Arvand for their financial support.
