Shakeela's story

Shakeela is a 41-year-old married woman and the mother of two children. She had a difficult time after her husband's business failure. She decided to work with her husband to support her family for a better future. Two years ago she began stitching work in her house. She stitches for the people living around her house and uses the income to support her entire family.

However, due to lack of availability of funds she is unable to meet the daily demands of her customers, so she requested a loan of 30,000 PKR from Kashf Foundation. She intends to use this loan amount to buy raw materials including cloth, threads of different colors, lace, and zippers to create a means of increasing revenues so she may be able to generate a healthier source of income. She is currently in her third loan cycle with a good repayment history.
