Seamstress by vocation!
All that we put on is sewn by a person whose profession is called "a tailor". Tailor is a common profession, not rare, but at the same time it is one of the most respected trades. In medieval Europe, tailors were highly respected and appraised. The best of them had the honor to dress the kings themselves. As we all wear and regularly buy clothes, we can also appreciate a role that a tailor plays in society. A good tailor can change a person, alter the image and appearance, making the ordinarily looking woman a beauty or turning the ordinary man into an elegant gentleman.
Faridai Kurbonnazar is one of those tailors whose talent was able to gain the hearts and respect of many customers. She sews both national and European clothing. Faridai graduated from the university with a diploma of teacher of geography in secondary school, but despite this she finds dressmaking her vocation. Faridai spends most of her time at the sewing machine with patience and perseverance that help her “tame” even the most “capricious” fabric.
Faridai works at the tailoring shop in the area of Dushanbe city named Giprozem. Farida’s father is a driver of fixed-run taxi #52, and her mother teaches the native language and literature at school. Their family is well-to-do. However, Faridai decided to contribute to the family budget and help her brother to get higher education paying for his studies. She took a loan of $1,000 and makes monthly loan repayment from her income due to tailoring.
"Where to take a loan was no problem for me, as my colleague Adiba Vosieva, as a client of MDO "Humo", told me about their affordable interest rates and good service. In the family council we decided: we take a loan at the MDO "Humo" to pay for the studies of my brother. And as a result we didn’t regret that we made the choice.
Seeing MDO "Humo" a reliable partner, in order to buy a sewing machine and additional equipment I applied for another loan, in the amount of $ 3,000. Fortunately, the company accepted my request and in the shortest time I got the required amount. The first thing I did was buying a new up-to-date sewing machine, overstitching machine (zigzaggerserger) and several types of fabric. The remaining part was spent on the apartment renovation.
The main risk in our profession is not to please the customer. If you make wrong drafts or cut out wrongly, you can ruin the material. However, I am learning by my own mistakes, and with every sown thing my skill gets improved, so I'm not afraid to take on the most complex garments. It's a great incentive to improve your experience”.
Farida has found her way in life and her main mission - she became a dressmaker!
