Iqbal's story

Iqbal is a 46-year-old vigorous, married woman. She has had a business of hand-embroidery for the past six years. 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 as a sales person in a grocery store, but he does not earn enough to support his family well alone. Iqbal’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street and she is the best earning resource in her household. She is a mother of five children and is trying hard to fulfill their demands, including food, health, clothing, and education. She wants to grow her business so she requested a loan of PKR 35,000, to buy raw materials such as thread, sequins and pearls in large quantities to meet the increasing demand. She shared her dream of opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
