Arzoo's story

Ms. Arzoo has been doing the work of hand-embroidery for the past five years. She is very talented and excels in her work. She has gotten a lot of appreciation from her community. But business challenges, combined with family expenditures, frustrate her nearly every day. Her husband is a bread earner, but he does not earn enough to support his family well. Arzoo’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street, and she is the best earning resource in her household.

She is a mother of four children. For the growth of her business, she requested a loan of 25,000 Rs (Pakistani rupees) from Kashf foundation to buy raw materials such as thread, sequins and pearls in large quantities to meet with the increasing demand. She shared her dream of running a training center for girls of her village. She would teach embroidery skills, so they can help her expand her business, and also earn money for themselves.
