A loan of $425 helped to purchase spools of thread, cloth, packages of needles, pearls, and sequins.


Farzana's story

Farzana is a 42-year-old married woman with six children, two of whom attend school. She runs a hand-embroidery business using cloth from last year. Farzana's designs are very popular in her area and she has a good client list. Her husband is an old man who is not able to earn enough to meet the house expenses and Farzana earns enough to lead a decent life. Farzana is requesting a 40,000 PKR loan with the Kashf Foundation to purchase spools of thread, cloth, packages of needles, pearls, and sequins. Her loan will help her to meet her increasing demand. Farzana expects a boost in her net income and hopes to spend part of her profits on her daughters' marriage ceremonies.
