59-летняя Мунавар занимается древним ремеслом - шитьем курпа и курпача. Это ватные стеганые одеяла, которые до сих пор являются главными бытовыми предметами в доме у таджиков. Курпача стелится на пол и используется вместо кресел, а курпа используется зимой в качестве одеяла во время сна. Мунавар занимается этим ремеслом в течение 5 лет. Ей в деятельности помогает единственная дочь. Мунавар замужем и имеет еще двоих сыновей. Она проживает со своей семьей районе Б.Гафуров города Худжанд.
Услуга Мунавар всегда востребованная. Особенно когда люди устраивают свадьбу они в качестве приданого для будущей невесты или для своей дочери, выходящей замуж шьют на заказ курпа и курпача. Поэтому деятельность Мунавар день за днем расширяется и сейчас она нуждается в кредите. Мунавар собирается закупить хлопок и сшить большое количество ватных стеганых одеял.
