Munavar's story

Munavar is 59 years old and does an old craft, she sews quilts called kurpa and kurpacha. These are cotton quilts which are still the main household items in the homes of Tajiks. Kurpacha is put on the floor and is used instead of chairs, and kurpa is used in the winter as a quilt for sleeping. Munavar has been doing this for five years. Her only daughter helps her in the business. Munavar is married and also has two sons. She lives with her family in the region of Gafurov in the town of Khujand.

Munavar's service is always in demand. Especially when people hold wedding celebrations they make kurpa and kurpacha as a dowry for the future bride or their daughter who is getting married. This is why Munavar's business is growing day by day and now she needs a loan. Munavar wants to buy cotton to sew a large quantity of cotton quilts.
