Fatma Dilek's story

Fatma is divorced and has one child. Fifteen years ago she started making authentic embroidery inspired by Turkish themes as a hobby. She made bedspreads and covers for bedroom furniture. Later on she tried this embroidery on jewelry. She made various kinds of bracelets and rings. After a while she started her own business. She would get orders from her customers and sell her products. She improved her work and started making accessories for home decoration. When there were no orders, she continued to produce items and sold them wherever she went. With the help of the loan she will buy various strings, demse strings (glow in the dark) and accessories. Part of the loan will be used to create a website on which her products will be displayed. Her sales will increase because the number of accessories for her creations will increase. Right now she cannot buy anything because she does not have any capital. With the help of this loan she will be able to buy the items she needs and complete her orders and sell them. In the future, she wants to increase her capital and open a store. She wants to present her products to the public and also employ other women. She wants to guarantee her child's future and enable her child to complete a full education. She also wants to found a trademark.
