Naheed's story

Ms Naheed is 53 years old and a hard-working, married woman. She has been engaged in a business of stitching, at home, for the past 16 years. She has made progress. She is married and has five children; all of the children are school-going. It’s hard to depend solely on the income of one's husband, so she started her business from a small level, to contribute to the family income. By this time, she has attained a regular list of customers, and she makes enough to support the needs of the family members. Her daughters assist her in her business. To fulfill the customers’ orders on time, she needs to purchase spools of thread and a new sewing machine. For this reason, she contacted Kashf Foundation and applied for a loan of PKR 25,000. She dreams of expanding her business, by opening a boutique in her community to display her work.
