Farzana's story

Farzana is a 32-year-old married woman who has enjoyed the work of making Parandas for so many years. A Paranda is considered a traditional hair accessory in a country like Pakistan. Women use it for a traditional look on special occasions like Eid (a holiday) and weddings. She makes beautiful Parandas, especially for bridal hairstyles. By this time, she has attained a good number of customers who have helped her account for expenses she thought she could never bear. She is striving hard to meet her family's expenditures, as she is responsible for providing them with a good environment with good food, clothing, and education. To inflate her sales, she applied for a loan of Rs 15,000 through Kashf Foundation to buy raw materials including colorful threads, beads, mirrors, and pearls for embellishment. This will help to attract more customers, which ultimately helps in generating more income for her.
