Zainab
Ms Zainab is a 42-year-old, vigorous lady. She has been stitching clothes for ten years. She stitches for the people of her community and uses the income to support her entire family. However, due to lack of availability of funds, she is unable to meet the daily demands of her customers.

For this reason, she requested a loan of PKR 20,000 from Kashf Foundation. She intends to use this loan to buy more spools of thread in different colors, along with packs of laces, zippers, and buttons, to create a means of increasing revenue, so she may able to generate a healthier source of income. She is thankful to Kashf Foundation for its tremendous support.
