A loan of $225 helped to expand and improve her tailoring business by purchasing additional raw materials.

Sunita's story

Mrs. Sunita M. is a 31-year-old tailor in the town of Kritipur. Her husband's name is Anil M., and he works in private office. In addition, she has two daughters: one is 13 years old and is in grade 8 in school, while the other is 11 years old and is in grade 5.

She opened her tailoring shop 3 years ago, and she notes that she specializes in making custom-fitted ladies dresses (e.g., Kurta Sulwar, which are very popular with Nepali women). Before she started her own business, Mrs. M. completed a 6-month training course in tailoring from a tailor shop near her home.

She is requesting a loan in the amount of $225 in order to buy raw materials for her tailoring work. In turn, she expects to generate an increase in her shop's income, which she will use to improve her family's living conditions and to pay for her daughters' educations. In Nepal the cost of a good education is increasing, so Mrs. M. is saving her income to provide her daughters with such an education.
