A loan of $1,050 helped buy a new, modern sewing machine.

Mavjuda's story

Mavjuda is an experienced and capable seamstress who lives in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan. She is 43, married, and has 3 kids. Her husband is a builder, while Mavjuda, in addition to being a seamstress, works in a hospital as a nurse. She's been plying both trades for the past 18 years, working as a nurse on weekdays and spending the weekends sewing dresses to order. However, her sewing machine broke recently, putting a halt to her dressmaking activities. To be able to continue making dresses, she's seeking a loan to buy a new, modernized sewing machine, and is counting on your support.
