Amna's story

Ms. Amna is a 37-year-old, energetic married woman. For the last three years, she has been doing a business of manufacturing "waan" which is 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 she is famous in providing good quality waan in her community. In this way she is able to manage the needs of her family members. Her husband is a labor worker whose income is not sufficient to meet the needs of his family members. She requires improving her business so she applied for a loan of 30,000 PKR to buy a new waan making machine to provide better quality material. She wishes to utilize part of the revenue for the betterment of her family.
