A loan of $425 helped to purchase latest beads, threads, sequins, and pearls.


Razia's story

Ms. Razia has expertise in embroidery and has been using her skill to provide for her family for over 10 years now. She started this line of work at a very young age. During the initial years of her business, she barely made enough money to purchase the required materials. Today she is proud to be famous in her community as being the best at making beautiful patterns with thread and beads.

Three years ago, when Razia borrowed from Kashf for the first time, it helped her to expand her business. Now she has requested another loan worth of 40,000 Pakistan Rupees (PKR) to purchase in bulk the latest beads, threads, sequins, and pearls. She says that the females in her community are becoming demanding with the passage of time and satisfying them is a challenge that Razia has taken up.
