Now, she is very satisfied and has requested a repeat loan of 30000 PKR to buy spools of thread as well as packs of sequins, pearls and glittering material. Her embroidery patterns are very popular in her street, so she intends to use the profits for her children’s well-being and education. Fatima shared her dream of running a training center for girls from her village. She would teach embroidery skills, so they can help her expand her business, and to also earn money for themselves. Fatima is also interested in opening her own shop in the market to display her valuable work.
