A loan of $775 helped a member to purchase required materials for a boutique business.

Noor Jahan's Group's story

Noor Jahan lives in Multan with her family. They own a small house of two rooms and have been living in it for the past ten years. She is involved in the boutique business, selling embroidered and stitched dresses. Her variety of clothes attracts customers to her boutique. She has been doing this work for over six years. Her client base is purely women. She prepares women's wear such as embroidered shalwar kamiz and stitched kurtas. These two garments are famous in Pakistan because women love to wear these dresses, not just for special occasions but also as everyday wear.

She sells her goods within her neighborhood and also to the clothing shops, delivering the finished products to the designated places. She also sells bangles to earn extra income, but that is not her primary business.

Noor Jahan has applied for a loan from Asasah (a microfinance institute in Pakistan). With the loan amount she will buy materials like clothes, threads, and beads in bulk. She will also hire a worker to help her fulfill the larger orders in time.

She is hopeful that she will be able to bring positive financial changes to her family.
