Shazia's story

Ms. Shazia is 35 years old and has been stitching clothes for five years. She sews for the people of her community and uses the income to support her entire family. However, due to lack of funds, she is unable to meet the daily demands of her customers. She is supporting her household because her husband is a pensioner and is now working for daily wages. She makes clothes and bedsheets on order for shopkeepers.

She has requested a loan of PKR 25,000 from the Kashf Foundation. Shazia intends to use this loan to buy more spools of thread, fabric and sheets for her sewing business. She wants to increase her revenues so that she may be able to generate a healthier source of income. She is in her seventh loan cycle and thankful to Kashf for its tremendous support.
