Soriya's story

Soriya is a 51-year-old vigorous, married woman. She has had a hand-embroidery business for the past five years. She is zealous 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 alone to support his family well. Soriya’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street and she is the best earning member of her household.

She is a loving mother of six children and is responsible for providing with good quality food, clothes and education. She wants to grow her business so she requested a loan of 15,000 PKR to buy raw materials such as threads, sequins and pearls in large quantities to meet increasing demand. She shared her dream of running a training center for the girls of her village. She would like to teach embroidery skills, so they can help her expand her business, and also to earn money for themselves. She is also interested in opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
