Razia's story

Razia is 51 years old, married, and has three children who attend school. She has had a business of hand embroidery for the past five years. Two of her daughters (seen in the photo) assist her in making beautiful patterns. Razia is zealous about her work and client demand is strong. Business challenges, combined with family expenditures, frustrate Razia nearly every day. Her husband is employed as a sales person in a grocery store, but he does not earn enough to support the family. Razia’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street and she is the best earning resource in her household. Razia is requesting a loan for 20,000 PKR, which she will use to buy raw materials such as thread, sequins, and pearls in large quantities to meet the increasing demand of her customers. She dreams of running a training center for girls in her village. She would like to teach embroidery skills, so they can help her expand her business and also earn money for themselves. She is also interested in opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
