Tahira's story

Ms Tahira is a 32-year-old married woman and a mother of four children. She is trying hard to fulfil their demands including food, health, clothing and education. She has been stitching gloves for the past eight years. She has one sewing machine which has been purchased with the financial help of Kashf Foundation. Her husband is working on a power loom but his income is not sufficient to run the household alone so she is contentedly doing it for the sake of her family and contributes enough to the family income. She has a good client list; however due to a lack of available funds she is unable to meet the daily demand of her customers. Due to this she applied for a loan of 25,000 PKR to buy one more machine with spools of threads to inflate her sales. She has been associated with Kashf Foundation for two years. She expects a boost in her earnings and wishes to spend part of the profits on the betterment of her family members.
