Allah-Rakhi's story

Ms. Allah-Rakhi is 52 years old, a vigorous married woman. She has been doing a business of hand-embroidery for the past five years. She is passionate about her work, and client demand is strong. But business challenges, combined with family expenditures, frustrate her nearly every day. Her husband is the bread earner, but he does not earn enough to support his family well.

Allah-Rakhi’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street, and she is the best earning resource in her household. She is a mother of six children. She wants to grow her business. She requested a loan of Rs 25,000 from Kashf Foundation, to buy materials such as thread, sequins and pearls in large quantities to meet with the increasing demand. She is in her 7th loan cycle.

She shared her dream of running a training center for girls in her village. She would teach embroidery skills, so they can help her expand her business, and also earn money for themselves. She is also interested in opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
