Mumtaz's story

Mumtaz is a 36-year-old, energetic, married woman. For the last three years, she has been doing a business of manufacturing a ‘waan,’ which is a material used in making charpoy -- a bedstead of woven webbing or hemp stretched on a wooden frame on four legs, common in Pakistan. She offers various kinds of waan in different colors and she is famous in providing good quality waan in her community. In this way, she is able to manage the needs of her family members. Her husband’s income is not sufficient to meet the needs of the family members alone. Mumtaz is a mother of three children.

She requires improvement of her business, so she applied for a loan of PKR 25,000 to buy another waan-making machine, to make the waan with high quality thread, to increase sales. She wishes to spend part of the profit on the betterment of her family members.
