Soliya's story

Soliya is a resident of the Shahrituz district, and she is 48 years old. She has four adolescent children, three sons and one daughter. At the present time, Soliya works as a cook at a kindergarten. Her only daughter is involved in sewing. Soliya wants to also get involved in sewing concurrently. She can cut and sew Tajik women's dresses. Soliya plans to combine her work with the sewing business because she wants to improve her family's financial situation. However, she needs a loan to purchase an embroidery machine and start accepting orders. Soliya hopes that this way she would help her husband with providing for the family.
