Safeera's story

Safeera, age 41, is a married woman. She has been doing a business of hand-embroidery for many years to contribute to the family income. She beautifully pastes stones and pearls on shawls and clothes. She is passionate 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. Safeera’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street, and she is the best earning resource in her household.

To cope with the orders of her customers on time she needs to purchase spools of thread along with packs of sequins and pearls in large quantities. For this reason, she requested a loan of Rs 40,000 through Kashf Foundation. She expects a boost in her earnings by completing the orders of her customers on time. She shared her dream of opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
