A loan of $225 helped to purchase new stitching machines, threads, needles and other wants to accommodate two new students.


Shahnaz's story

Ms. Shahnaz is currently running a stitching school in her house. She is known around town as the best stitching teacher in town. She has been in business for seven years now and says that these seven years have been a blessing. She provides for her four children who are going to school, because unlike other children in town, their mother is able to pay for their education.

While speaking to Kashf's team, Ms. Shahnaz shared that life was not like this before. She, along with her husband and children, lived in a broken down, one-room house with the minimum of necessities. Taking a loan from Kashf helped her account for expenses she thought she could never bear.

Now, she has requested a loan of 20,000 PKR to purchase new stitching machines, threads, needles and other wants to accommodate two new students, increasing the total number of students to seven. Ms. Shahnaz decided to use the profits for the well-being of her family and to improve their standard of living.
