Sariya's story

Ms Sariya, 49 years old, is a vigorous, married woman. She has had 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 employed as a sales person in a grocery store, but he does not earn enough to support his family well. Sariya’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street and she is the best earning resource in her household.

She is a mother of five children. She wants to grow her business. She requested a loan of Rs 25,000 to buy raw materials such as threads, sequins and pearls in large quantities to meet the increasing demand. She is in her third loan cycle with a good repayment history. 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 earn money for themselves. She is also interested in opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
