She is taking loan for her daughters because all of her daughters are expert in the art of embroidery work. They have learned this art from a reputable art school and now they are practicing at home. They are very skilled in their profession and knit very fine bridal dresses. The embroidery material for bridal dresses is very expensive and its turnover is also very high. Now the marriage season is going on and they are very busy continually knitting bridal dresses to support their family.
Due to demand they are facing a shortage of material and are unable to knit fine embroidery. Therefore, Khalida requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that she could eliminate the shortage of embroidery material. Through this amount she will buy stocks of threads, fancy cloths, sequins, and pearls of various colors. Khalida hopes that one day her daughters will be knitting their own bridal dresses for their own marriage ceremony.
Khalida is very thankful to the Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
