Noor
Ms Noor, a 21-year-old motivated unmarried lady, has expertise in embroidery, and has been using her skill to provide financial support to her family for over six years. She started this line of work at a very young age, and during the initial years of her business, she barely made enough money to purchase the required material. Today, she is proud to be famous in her community, known as the best at making beautiful patterns with threads and beads. Her designs are much in demand, and she has managed to consolidate a clientele that allows her to contribute to the expenses of her home.



Noor wants to grow her business, so she has requested a loan of PKR 25000 to buy raw materials such as thread, sequins and pearls in large quantities to meet the increasing demand of her customers. She hopes to improve her income and wishes to spend part of it on the betterment of her family.
