Ms Allahrakhi, a 38-year-old married mother of two daughters and a son, is striving hard to meet their food, clothing, and health needs. Her husband is employed in a small restaurant, but his income is not sufficient to meet the daily expenditures of the family. Allahrakh started her business to contribute to the family income.

Allahrakh has been making jewelry for many years, having initiated her business with the support of a Kashf Foundation loan she took to buy a jewelry machine. Well familiar with jewelry-making techniques, she enjoys a great client list and has gained a lot of appreciation and popularity in her community.

Allahrakh has requested a loan of Rs 15,000 to buy raw materials such as artificial gems, pearls, silver and gold to complete her customers’ orders on time. She hopes to grow her business and dreams of giving a good quality education to her children through all of her hard work.
