Riaz's story

Riaz is a 47-year-old vigorous, married woman. She is a mother of three children. Riaz has had a business of thread making for the past five years. She is passionate about her work, and client demand for her products is strong. But business challenges, combined with family expenditures, frustrate her nearly every day. Her husband works, but he does not earn enough to support his family well. Riaz is the best earning resource in her household. Riaz wants to grow her business so she contacted Kashf Foundation and applied for a loan of PKR 20,000 to buy raw materials such as bundles of wool and cotton threads in different colors to meet the increasing demand for her products. She has been associated with Kashf for two years and has a good repayment history. Riaz shared her dream of running a training center for girls in her village. She would teach them thread-making skills so that they can help her expand her business and also earn money for themselves.
