Razia's story

Razia is 47 years old, and a married woman. She has had a sewing business for the past four years. She knows the techniques of sewing very well and over time she has become well known in her community. Her designs are very popular on her street, and she is the best source of income in her household. However, she initially faced a lot of problems, especially in meeting her daily expenses and also in the growth of her children. She is a mother of six; three of her daughters help her in her business.

Razia wants to grow her business so she has requested a loan of PKR 20,000 to buy a new sewing machine with spools of threads in various colors. She has been in association with Kashf Foundation for four years. She has a dream of running a training center for girls in her area. She would like to teach them sewing skills, so they can help her expand her business, and to also earn money for themselves.
