Shahnaz's story

Ms. Shahnaz is a 28-year-old married woman who is living with her husband and four children in Punjab, Pakistan. For many years she has been in the work of hand-embroidery. She makes beautiful patterns for the people of her community. Her designs are much in demand, and she has managed to consolidate a clientele that allows her to contribute to the expenses of her home.

To help her to continue her operations, Shahnaz has requested a loan of Rs. 25,000 to buy reels of thread in different colors, with packs of sequins, beads and stones for embellishment. In this way, she would be able to cater to more customers consistently. She is hopeful to get an increase in her income by targeting more customers.

Shahnaz dreams of her children's bright future and desires to build her own house, as she is living in a rented house with her family. She is very much thankful to Kashf for its tremendous support.
