Sha'migul supports her parents and children. She is a dressmaker. She sews traditional dresses to order. This is Sha'migul's only source of income. Sha'migul works a lot to earn a living, so her old machine broke down quickly . Her machine was already old and Sha'migul sewed with it for about four years. Now, her sewing machine is not usable. Therefore, Sha'migul is taking out a loan. She intends to use money from the loan to buy a new sewing machine and continue her work.
