Sattar's story

Sattar is 54 years old and a widow. Her husband died nearly 20 years ago. She has had a business of hand-embroidery for the past fifteen years. After the death of her husband, she aimed to give her children a good and reasonable status in the society. This compelled her to start her own business, now she has become the best earning resource in her household. She is a mother of three children and is responsible for providing them with the basic necessities of life.

Sattar wants to expand her business. She requested a loan of Rs 35,000 to buy raw materials such as thread, sequins, and pearls in large quantities to meet increasing demand for her work. She also shared her dream of running a training center for girls of her village. She would teach embroidery skills so the girls can help her expand her business and also earn money for themselves. Sattar’s daughters also assist her in fulfilling orders on time.
