Humaira's story

At the age of 23 Humaira is an energetic married lady and the mother of two children. She has been stitching clothes for the past two years. She stitches for the people of her community and uses the income to support her entire family. However, due to lack of availability of funds she is unable to meet with the daily demands of her customers. For this reason she has requested a loan of Rs 15,000 from the Kashf Foundation.

She intends to use this loan to buy spools of thread in different colors with packs of laces, zippers and buttons. This will create a means of increasing her revenue so that she can generate more income. She hopes to grow her business and dreams of giving a good quality education to her children through all her hard work in her business.
