Razia's story

Razia is a 45-year old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her son owns an enterprise of stitching and selling embroidery by machine in his nearby town. He has had this business since 2005. He has been recruiting workers for embroidery work on daily wages; he also brings some material to home for his sister because his sister helps him with embroidery work. He is an expert in his profession, and he is especially famous for bridal dresses; people like him for his arts and appreciate his efforts. Now, the marriage season is going to start, and there is a lot of demand for his art. He wants to cope with the demand for bridal dresses, which is why he wants to buy stocks of threads, fancy cloths, sequins, and pearls of various colors in advance. Razia requires some capital to buy the desired items for her son but she does not have a sufficient amount. So she humbly requested a loan of 35,000 PKR from BRAC Pakistan. With this loan, her son will be able to buy stocks of threads, fancy cloths, sequins, and pearls of various colors. Razia is very glad and thankful to BRAC Pakistan.
