Rani's story

Ms Rani is a 40-year-old, married woman, and the mother of four children. For the past 25 years, Rani has been running a business of carpet manufacturing. Her husband is a government employee, but his salary is not enough to meet home expenses, which are increasing day by day. This compelled Rani to work, herself, to contribute to the family's income. She is also doing sewing as her part-time job. In this way, she is able to handle her family's needs and requirements efficiently.

She makes carpets with a special kind of wood, known as "dub wood." These carpets are used in mosques, for the purpose of prayer. By this time, she has become popular in her community for providing good-quality carpets.

In order to purchase a stock of dub wood and some utensils, such as cutters and scissors, she applied to Kashf Foundation for a second loan, of PKR 30,000. The loan capital will help her to increase her production of carpets, and increase her sales. She expects a boost in her earnings and wishes to spend it on the betterment of her family members.
