Shazia's story

Ms. Shazia is a 39-year-old married woman and the mother of four children. She has been running a sewing business for the past nine years. She stitches for the people living around her house and uses the income to support her entire family members. She has accepted the fact that if her husband works alone for the family, he will not be able to manage the expenses of the household, especially considering the educational needs of their children.

Shazia makes enough money to contribute to the family's income and has become well-known for her work in stitching bed sheets, covers and pillows. Now she has requested a loan of PKR 20,000 from the Kashf Foundation to purchase more thread, buttons, laces and zippers. In this way she will be able to meet the family's increasing demands consistently. Shazia hopes to grow her business and dreams of giving a good and quality education to her children through all her hard work on her business.
