Shafiqa's story

Shafiqa is a 53-year-old married woman who has two children. For about 15 years, she has been working with hand embroidery. Her husband is doing business selling fruits, but his income is not enough to support his family.

Shafiqa makes beautiful patterns for the people in her community. Her designs are much in demand, and she has managed to consolidate a clientele that allows her to contribute to the expenses of her home.

To help her continue her operations, she has requested a loan of PKR 35,000 to buy reels of threads in different colors, along with packs of beads, sequins, and stones for embellishment. In this way, she would be able to cater to more customers consistently.

She is on her fourth loan cycle with good repayment history.
