Kalsoom's Group's story

Kalsoom supports her family financially by doing embroidery. She is very skillful and receives a good number of orders every month.

Her husband is a professional carpenter and expert in making furniture. He operates his business in the market and manufactures very good quality furniture. Due to his good quality work, he receives good appreciation from his customers.
