Sajida's story

Ms. Sajida is a 42-year-old married woman. She is successfully running a business of hand embroidery in her house despite having six children. She is a very energetic and ambitious woman who wants to improve the standard of living of her family by raising her income level. That’s why she started a business of hand-embroidery to provide the basic needs of food, education, and health of her children. Her husband‘s income is not sufficient to meet the household expenses alone.

She has gradually improved her business with the support of the Kashf foundation. She has been in association with Kashf for eight years and has shown excellent repayment behavior. Currently she applied for a loan of 40,000 PKR to purchase more spools of threads, and packs of sequins, beads, and pearls in various colors. This way she will be able to cater to more customers which ultimately helps in generating more cash.
