A loan of $225 helped to buy a new sewing machine and spools of thread for her business.


Rukhsana's story

Ms. Rukhsana is a 40-year-old married woman. She has been sewing gloves for many years. She sews for the people of her community and also receives orders from the local market. Her husband works in a service station for daily wages, and his income is not sufficient to support his family alone. Rukhsana has built a regular list of customers, and she makes enough to contribute to the family income. However, due to a lack of available funds, she is unable to meet the daily demands of her customers. For this reason, she has applied for a loan of PKR 20,000 from Kashf Foundation. She intends to use this amount to buy a new sewing machine and spools of thread, to create a means of increasing revenues so she can generate a healthier source of income.
