Asima's story

Mrs Asima is a 45-year-old, married woman. She has been in the business of sewing garments (shirts for gentlemen and children) for many years. She is well familiar with the stitching techniques. She initiated her business with the support of Kashf Foundation; she took her first loan to buy a stitching machine. At present, she enjoys a great customer list, and she has gained a lot of appreciation and popularity in her community and in the local market.

Asima is a mother of seven children -- one son and six daughters. She is striving hard to meet their needs, including food, clothing, and health. Her husband is employed in a small workshop. His income is not sufficient to meet the daily expenditures of the family. She started her business to contribute to the family income.

She requested a loan of PKR 25,000 to replace her old stitching machine, and to buy some more spools of thread, buttons and zippers in various colors. With these items she will be able to meet the demand of her customers without fail. She hopes to grow her business, and she dreams of giving a good-quality education to her children, through all her hard work in her business.
