Savriniso's story

Savriniso lives in the city of Kulob with her husband and 10-year-old and 7-year-old children. Her children attend school. Her husband has already been in Russia for a few months, where he earns a living and provides for their family.

Savriniso is 36 years old. She received an education at a medical college, but she does not work in that profession. Two years ago, she started offering sewing services out of her home. She learned this trade from her neighbor. In a short period of time, Savriniso has been able to attract her own loyal customers, as she treats them with respect and always does her best to fulfill their orders by the deadline. Now Savriniso has decided to expand her business. In addition to sewing dresses, she also wants to do custom, original embroidery on them. However, she does not have the appropriate sewing machine for this. This is why Savriniso took out a loan to buy a new machine of this type.
