Zarnigor is 18 years old, single and lives with her parents. She graduated with good marks but her parents are poor people and she did not have an opportunity to continue her education in any university. Now, she is going to organize her own business by sewing national dresses. She took part in a course, ‘To Get Ahead,’ offered by a women's organization. Zarnigor got a lot of useful information from this course. She is asking for a loan of 5000 Somoni to buy a sewing machine, needles, tread and fabric for her new business. She awaits your support.
