Safia's story

Ms. Safia is a 45-year-old, vigorous married woman. She has been doing a business of hand embroidery for the past two years. She beautifully makes patterns and becomes famous in her community. She is passionate about her work and client demand is strong, but the business challenges, combined with the family expenditures she faces, frustrate her nearly every day. Her husband is employed as a sales person in a grocery store. He earns not enough to support his family well, while Safia is the best earning resource of her house, as her embroidery patterns are very popular in her street. Safia is a mother of three children; all are school-going. She wants to grow her business, so she requested a loan of Rs 25,000 to buy raw material such as reels of thread, packs of sequins, and pearls in large quantity to meet with the increasing demand. She shared her dreams of running a training center for girls of her village to train them and to transfer her skills, so that they can help her in expanding her business and also earn for them.
