Ms. Muneera is a 24 year-old lady who enjoys doing hand embroidery. Her embroidery patterns are very popular in her territory and she has attained a regular list of customers. She has four children and her husband is not in a good physical shape to support her family alone so she is motivated to provide her family with the basic necessities of life including food, clothes and education. In order to meet the growing demand of embroidery she requested a loan of Rs.30,000 from Kiva partner the Kashf foundation. She intends to use this loan amount to buy more frames, needles and threads in different colors which will help in generating more income. She hopes to have a good experience with this new loan.
