Alas's story

Ms. Alas is a 45-year-old widow and has been involved in the business of sewing for seven years. She had a difficult time after her husband's death and decided to work to support her family for a better future. She sews for the people living around her house and uses the income to support her entire family. With time she has become well-known in her community and receives orders for special occasions like weddings, festivals, etc. However, due to a lack of available funds she is unable to meet her customers' orders on time. She is currently in her 1st cycle and has borrowed 15,000 PKR. She requires using this loan amount to buy raw material including spools of threads with the packs of laces, buttons and zippers in different colors. She is hopeful to get an increase in her net income which will enable her to meet the daily expenses of her family members.
