Shemo's story

Ms. Shemo is 31 years old, a vigorous, married woman. She has had a business doing hand-embroidery for the past five years. She is passionate about her work, and client demand is strong.

But business challenges, combined with family expenditures, frustrate her nearly every day. Her husband is employed as a sales person in a grocery store, but he does not earn enough to support his family well. Shemo's embroidery patterns are very popular on her street, and she is the best earning resource in her household.

She is a mother of three children. She wants to grow her business. She requested a loan of Rs 30000, to buy raw materials such as thread, sequins and pearls in large quantities to meet the increasing demand.

She shared her dream of running a training center for girls of her village. She would teach embroidery skills, so they can help her expand her business, and to also earn money for themselves. She is also interested in opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
