Rukhsana is a 54-years old lady; and spends her life with her husband and three daughters.

She is taking a loan for her daughters, because all of her daughters are experts in the art of embroidery, and knit very fine bridal dresses.

Due to high demand, they are facing a shortage of material and are unable to knit fine embroidery. Therefore, Rukhsana requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that she can reduce the shortage of embroidery raw material. Through this amount she will buy inventory of threads, fancy cloths, precious stones, sequins, and pearls of various colors. Rukhsana is very thankful to Kiva and their field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
