Zubaida's story

Zubaida is 23 years old and a vigorous, married woman. For the past five years, she has run a hand-embroidery business. Zubaida is zealous about her work and client demand is strong. But business challenges, combined with family expenditures, frustrate her nearly every day. Zubaida's husband works as a salesperson at a grocery store, but he does not earn enough to support his family. Zubaida’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street and she is the best earning resource in her household. Zubaida is requesting a 20,000 PKR loan to buy materials such as threads, sequins, and pearls in large quantities to meet her increasing demand and grow her business. In the future, Zubaida dreams of running a training center for girls of her village. She would like to teach embroidery skills so her students can both help her to expand her business and also earn money for themselves. Zubaida is also interested in opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
