Sharifan's story

Ms. Sharifan is a 56-year-old married woman. She had a difficult time after her husband's business failed. She decided to work with her husband and to support her family for a better future.

Two years ago she began embroidery work in her house for the people living in her community. She started the business of hand embroidery, and uses the income to support her entire family. However, due to lack of availability of funds, she is unable to meet the daily demands of her customers. For this she has requested a loan of PKR 40,000 from the Kashf foundation.

Ms. Sharifan has been in association with Kashf for six years and shown excellent repayment behavior. She intends to use this loan amount to buy raw material including pearls, sequins and spools of threads in various colors for her embroidery to increase her revenue.

She desires to spend any earned income on the betterment of her family members.
