Shiasta's story

Ms Shiasta is a 26-year-old lady who has been running a sewing business for the past six years. She is proud to be contributing to her household income. When Shiasta was not earning, her family was going through a financial crisis that compelled her to use her sewing skills in a productive manner. Her husband was the sole breadwinner of the family; due to limited resources she could not afford the expenses of her children’s education. So she felt it obligatory to change her family’s living standards and started working from home. She is a brave woman but she was having difficulty in fulfilling large orders. That’s when her husband advised her to borrow from Kashf. She has requested a loan of 25,000 PKR and her loan will be used to purchase a new stitching machine with some spools of threads and packs of ribbons, laces and zippers in different colors. She dreams of expanding her business in the near future.
