Rafique's story

Ms Rafique is a 44-year-old vigorous, married woman and a mother of three children. She has had a business of hand-embroidery for the past five years. Two of her daughters also assist her in making beautiful patterns. She is zealous about her work, and client demand is strong. But business challenges, combined with family expenditures, frustrate her nearly every day. Her husband is employed in a small garment shop, but he does not earn enough to support his family well alone. Rafique’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street and she is the best earning resource in her household. She wants to grow her business so she requested a loan of Rs 25000 to buy raw materials such as thread, sequins and pearls in large quantities to complete the maximum orders on time. She would like to teach embroidery skills to the girls of her community, so they can help her expand her business and earn money for themselves. She is also interested in opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
