Ameena's story

Ameena is a 55-year-old married woman; she works in hand embroidery. She makes beautiful patterns for the people of her community. 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. To help her to continue her operations, she has requested a loan of Rs. 30,000 to buy reels of threads in different colors and packs of beads, sequins and stones for embellishment. In this way she would be able to cater to more customers consistently. She is hopeful to increase her income by targeting more customers. Ameena dreams for her children's bright future and desires to build her own house as she is living in a rented house with her family. She is in her third loan cycle with a good repayment history.
