Dilrabo's story

Dilrabo is a young married woman, aged 30. She lives in Bohtar. She has one small child. Her husband is working abroad to provide for the family. Dilrabo does not work anywhere, but she knows how to make beautiful Tajik dresses for women. She decided to use her skills and earn money this way. Dilrabo plans to take custom orders from home. To do this, she needs a sewing machine. She is going to buy two sewing machines and, with her mother, start sewing. However, she does not have enough in savings to make the purchase, so she applied for a loan.
