Aasia's story

Aasia is a 43-year-old, vigorous, married woman. She is a mother of two children. She has had a business of hand-embroidery for many years. She knows the art of making beautiful embroidery patterns with beads and pearls. She is zealous about her work, and client demand is strong, but business challenges combined with family expenditures frustrate her nearly every day. Her husband does not earn enough to support his family well alone.

Aasia’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street, and she is the best-earning resource in her household. She wants to grow her business, so she requested a loan of 70,000 PKR to buy raw materials such as thread, sequins and pearls in large quantities to meet the increasing demand time after time.

She hopes to gain more profits for fulfilling her dream of opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
