Asia's story

Asia is a 34-year-old married woman. Six years ago, she started her own hand embroidery business. She maintained hope and contacted the Kashf Foundation upon the advice of her neighbor to initiate her own business. She has a good client list; most of her clients are her neighbors. She is the mother of four children, three of whom are in school. The fourth helps her mother with her work.

She has gradually improved her business, and now she has requested a loan of 20,000 PKR. She is going to use this loan to buy reels of thread and packs of sequins, pearls and stones. She intends to use the profits she earns on her children’s education.
