Khalida's story

Khalida is a 38-year-old married lady and mother of five children. Three currently go to school while her little two children are toddlers. They live in a rented house in Rawalpindi. Her husband does paint work and his income depends on whenever there are orders.

Khalida is a housewife and entrepreneur. She is an expert in sewing, stitching, and embroidery. Having learned this art through different community courses, it helped her make earnings for her family. She usually takes orders from her neighbors. Having seen her talent, the local neighborhood girls come to her to learn sewing and embroidery.

Having seen the demand for learning this art, she decided to open her own sewing training center. She already has a sewing machine and intends to buy two simple and one computerized sewing machine that also does embroidery.

She has therefore requested for a loan from BRAC Pakistan, that she will repay with her income, to buy these machines. Khalida wants to become an inspiration for her children and her neighbors.
