Farzona's father is a radio mechanic and her mother is a nurse. Her brother works as a taxi driver. She and her sisters work at home sewing women's national dresses to order. Their services are always in demand. Farzona is an energetic and purposeful woman. She now wants to expand her business and plans to use the loan amount to buy one more sewing machine and other necessary sewing accessories to bring on an apprentice to learn cutting and sewing. She hopes to be able to successfully carry out her plans.
