Kishwar's story

Ms. Kishwar is a 44-year-old married woman who is living with her husband and three children. For about 10 years she has been doing hand embroidery work. She is successfully running her business with the support of her husband; the man shown in the photo is Kishwar’s husband. Both are working together and make beautiful patterns for the people of their community. Their designs are much in demand and they have enough customers that they are able to manage their household expenses. Her daughter also assists them in completing orders on time. To help her to continue her operations, she requested a loan of 30,000 PKR to buy threads in different colors and packs of beads, sequins, and stones for embellishing her designs. In this way she will be able to cater to more customers consistently. She is hopeful to increase her income by targeting more customers. She is in her fifth loan cycle, has good repayment history, and is very thankful to Kashf for its tremendous support. Kishwar dreams for her children's bright future and desires to build her own house, as she is living in a rented house with her family.
