Safiya's story

Ms. Safiya is a 43-year-old married woman and a mother of five children. Four years ago she started selling lace and buttons from the corner of her house. She chooses lace with different designs and colors by considering the taste of her customers.

In her married life, Safiya faced many financial problems because her husband’s income is not sufficient to run a household. But she did not lose hope and contacted Kashf Foundation upon the advice of her neighbor to start her own business. Safiya buys lace of different designs in bulk from the market at lower rates and sells them in her community. She has become famous on her street for providing good quality lace in every color for every cloth type. She has many clients and most are her neighbors. She has gradually improved her business, and now Safiya requests a loan of 30000 PKR to buy packs of lace and ribbons in different colors to meet with the demand. She intends to use the earned profits for improvement on her house.
