Shazia's story

Shazia is a 35 year old married woman. She has been making embroidery by hand at home for many years to support her family.

To cherish her children and to meet household expenses she started embroidery at home. A supplier comes to her home and provides her all the raw materials for embroidery. She completes her embroidery tasks over a wooden frame alongside her daughters. She wants to sells her embroidery directly in the market so that she can earn more profit for her family. She has become an expert in her art and wants to buy raw materials of her own so that she can sell her handmade embroidery in her hometown.

Shazia has requested a Kiva loan to buy raw material and wooden frames so she can make more embroidered dresses to sell and could generate maximum income.

She is a mother of seven children and she hopes to get a boost in her earnings through her large sales. She wishes to utilize a portion of her revenue to provide a quality education for her children.
