A loan of $475 helped to buy another machine to make waan with fresh quality thread to increase her sales.

Khalida's story

Khalida is a 43-year-old, energetic, married woman and a mother of eight children. For the past three years, she has been running a business manufacturing waan, 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 is famous for providing good quality waan in her community. This enables her to manage the needs of her family members. Her business requires improvement, so Khalida applied for a loan of 45,000 PKR to buy another good machine to make the ‘waan’ with fresh quality thread, to increase her sales.
