Madina's story

This woman's name is Madina. She is 25 years old. She lives with her mother and brother in the city of Khujand. Madina cuts patterns for and sews ethnic Tajik and European clothes. She takes orders from her home. Madina is a talented seamstress and gradually her number of customers has increased. Madina's mother works for a Tajik Certification and Regulatory Compliance Agency. Her younger brother, Dodojon, is 19 years old. He attends Tajik State University of Politics and Business, which is located in the city of Khujand. He is a first-year student in the Economics Department. He wants to receive a university education and land a job in his field of study in order to improve the financial situation of his family. This is currently Dodojon's main goal in life.

This university education is not free and unfortunately, Dodojon's family cannot pay for the next year's tuition. Madina wants to receive a loan for that Dodojon can continue his studies. She believes and hopes that her brother will graduate from university and get a good job.
