A loan of $325 helped to purchase raw material for making brooms (bundles of broomcom, wooden handles).

Marthan's story

Marthan is a 48-year-old married woman. She has been in the business of making brooms for the past 15 years. She lives in a small house in Gujranwala and sells her brooms in the local market. Her husband’s income was barely enough to meet the growing needs of the family. Initially sales were low and retailers were reluctant to keep them in their store. But over time, with hard work and dedication, Marthan mastered the art of broom making.

She is currently in her 2nd loan cycle. Due to an increase in demand for brooms, she applied for another loan in the amount of 30,000 PKR. She intends to purchase a large quantity of raw material (broomcom and wooden handles) since she can now produce a lot more than before. This will enable her to increase her supply to more cities and to gain more profits.
