Safina
Safina is a 42-year-old married woman and a mother of three children. She has been stitching clothes for about nine 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 with the daily demands of her customers. For this reason she requested a loan of Rs 20,000 from the Kashf Foundation. She intends to use this loan to buy more spools of threads in different colors, as well as packs of laces, zippers and buttons. In this way she will be able to generate a healthier source of income and set aside some savings for her children's bright future.
