“With the help of my teacher at the school, I participated in a local competition on fundamental economics and won! Thanks to this competition, I had access to other competitions and training. My teacher has been always by my side and supported me during these competitions. My next goal is to attend design school”, says a very grateful Bibisharifa. A true inspiration to girls in Tajikistan and the world over.

She credits her notions of entrepreneurship to the training camp she attended. Bibisharifa explains that the idea’s discussed helped her discover her potential. She was enlightened to the practices of business, their workings and the steps she’d need to follow to be successful. As is evident, she’s a go-getter, and secured herself as the winner for the best ‘business plan’. It was this victory that set the wheel in motion for Bibisharifa.
