Sitora's story

Sitora is a 30-year-old seamstress, living in the Rudaki region. She has working as a seamstress for over four years. Sitora is married and has two children. Her husband, not able to find well-paying work, left to work in another country.

Sitora is a high-energy and intelligent woman. She looks after her children and at the same time is engaged in her work. She sews mainly women's traditional dresses in various styles. Her customers are always pleased with her work. Now Sitora wants to expand her sewing business and is asking for a loan to buy a new computerized sewing machine. With this machine she will be able to sew faster and better and be able to make dresses with beautiful decorative embroidery.
