Aasma's story

Aasma is a 32-year-old vigorous, married woman. She has had a hand-embroidery business for the past three years. She is zealous about her work, and her 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 hotel marketing but he does not earn enough to support his family well on his own. Aasma’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street and she is the best earning resource in her household.

She is the mother of two children, both of whom are school-going. As she wants to grow her business she has requested for a loan of 30,000 PKR to buy raw materials such as thread, sequins and pearls in large quantities in order to meet with increasing demand. She is in her 3rd loan cycle and has a good repayment history. She dreams of opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
