A loan of $225 helped to buy another machine for making 'waan' out of good-quality materials.

Azeeman's story

Azeeman is 52 years old and a widow. For the past three years, she has been manufacturing ‘waan’ -- ropes, or straps, made from a dried, long, grassy plant. 'Waan' are used for many purposes, including making beds (combined with wooden frames on four legs). She offers various types of ‘waan’ in different colors, and is famous in her community for providing good-quality products.

Azeeman is a single parent of three children and is responsible for fulfilling the basic needs of her children, including food, health care, and education. She is also accountable for improving their standard of living. She wants to expand her business, so she applied for a loan of Rs. 20,000. She intends to use the loan money to buy another machine for making 'waan' out of good-quality materials, to increase her sales. She wishes to use her increased profits for the betterment of her family members.
