Ms Sahira is 25 years old and a married mother of one child. She has expertise in hand-embroidery and has been using her skills to provide for her family for over five years now. Her husband is a rickshaw driver whose income is not sufficient to meet the family's needs.

Three years ago when she borrowed from Kashf for the first time she wished to invest in buying raw materials. Currently she has requested a loan of 30,000 Pakistan rupees (PKR) to purchase more spools of thread, with packs of sequins, pearls and glittering material in various colors. She hopes to increase her income and wishes to spend part of the revenue on the betterment of her family.
