Gazala's story

Ms. Gazala is a 42-year-old married woman. She belongs to a poor family as her husband is a rickshaw driver who can barely meet the needs of his wife and four children.

Ghazala stitches clothes for ladies in her community and manages to contribute to her household income. With her earnings she is sending two of her children to school. However, when Kashf’s BDO met her for the first time, Ghazala was in a challenging phase of her life. Her husband was frustrated with the growing household expenses and none of her children were going to school.

With her loan she bought a new stitching machine and started working as a tailor. She was able to turn around her life with her dedication to work and Kashf’s support for three consecutive years. Currently she requested a loan of Rs 20,000 to purchase one more sewing machine with some reels of thread in different colors so her daughter can assist her in completing orders on time. In future she plans to take orders from a local boutique and will try to become a permanent supplier to them.
