Zahida's story

Ms Zahida is a 39-year-old married woman. She is a mother of seven children - three daughters and four sons - in which three of them are earning. But the increasing expenses are far more than the earnings. Therefore, she is striving hard to meet their demands, including food, clothing, and health. Her husband is employed at a small restaurant.

She has had a business of stitching for many years. She receives orders for special occasions like weddings. She is well familiar with stitching techniques. She initiated her business with the support of the Kashf foundation; she took her first loan, which amounted Rs 20,000, to purchase a sewing machine. At present, she enjoys a great client list and has gained a lot of appreciation and popularity within her community. Currently she requests a loan of Rs 20,000 again to buy spools of threads with packs of lace, ribbons, and zippers in various colors. Then, she will be able to meet the demands of her customers without fail. She hopes to grow her business and dreams of giving good quality education to her children through all her hard work.
