Shazia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy a greater variety of cloth and spools of thread in various colors.
Shazia, a 40-year-old, married woman, runs a small boutique at home to provide for her family. She purchases cloth from the market at low prices, sewing and then selling it to the people of her locality. She always has a great product selection to offer and she earns a good income that contributes to her family's well-being. For the improvement of her business, Shazia has requested a loan of PKR 30,000 to buy a greater variety of cloth and spools of thread in various colors. These purchases will allow her to fulfill the demands of her customers on-time. She wishes to provide a better standard of living to her family members.
