Shamim's Group's story

Shamim lives with her husband and five children in a city called Borewala in Pakistan. She is a very talented lady. She prepares embroidered clothes for her neighbors to earn an income. She is particularly excellent with her hand-made embroidery. With her art she crafts beautiful embroidered designs on clothes and attracts more customers with her work. She is the mother of five children, two sons and three daughters. None of them could get an education due to financial constraints. Both of her sons work. The older one sells shawls and the younger one sells clothes by going door to door in communities. Her husband runs a clothiing shop in the market. He buys the clothes from cities Multan and Lahore. These days her husband is facing the problem of low inventory and is unable to fulfill the requirements of the customers. Therefore, she has applied for a loan for the 3rd time from Asasah to financially help her husband. With the loan he will buy clothes in bulk for selling. This will not only cut the cost of traveling but also he will be able to buy the clothes on discount as a result of bulk purchasing. Shamim is hopeful that this investment will bring happiness to her family and that her family’s standard of living will improve.
