A loan of $400 helped to buy a stitching machine for her tailoring school.


Suriya's story

Nasreen is a 42-year-old married woman and the mother of four children.

Fifteen years ago she decided to start a stitching school business at her home to meet her household expenditures. She is expert in stitching fine clothes, so she decided to teach her arts to the girls of her area. In this way she is enabled to get more income and spread her arts to others. She teaches and stitches, with the help of her students, for the people living around her house and uses the income to support her entire family.

Due to lack of funds, however, she is unable to teach each of her students because she does not have more stitching machines for practice. She contacted BRAC Pakistan for a loan so that she could get an additional machine to help her students practice. It’s her third year with BRAC Pakistan and she has shown good repayment behavior. She is expecting a boost in her earnings and dreams of expanding her business in the future.
