Gulnaz's story

Gulnaz is a 36-year-old married woman living in the area of Multan, Pakistan. She is the mother of five children. Her husband is responsible to fulfil the needs of the family, but Gulnaz has been running an embroidery business for the past 10 years to help with expenses. Her embroidery business is very famous in the colony, and her business runs well. Due to good relations her business has increased. Gulnaz buys materials such as hand-embroidery kit, ribbons, needles and embroidery machine from the market. Another person handles her transactions with her customers. She has decided that she would like to sell her embroidery items directly in the market, so that she can earn a better profit for her family. She has become an expert in the embroidery business. She wants to meet the demand for bridal dresses. That is why she wants to buy threads, fancy cloths, sequins, and pearls of various colours in advance, to have in stock. She requires some capital to buy the desired items but does not have sufficient cash on hand. Therefore, Gulnaz humbly requested a loan from BRAC Pakistan. Through this loan, she will be able to buy the threads, fancy cloths, sequins, and pearls of various colours that she needs. Gulnaz and her family are thankful to the KIVA lender’s and field partner BRAC Pakistan for helping them by funding this loan to improve their living standard. .
