Zatoon's story

Zatoon is a 40-year-old married woman who has enjoyed the work of making parandas for so many years. Parandas are considered a traditional hair accessory in countries like Pakistan. Women use it for a traditional look on special occasions, like weddings and Eid (a holiday). Zatoon makes beautiful parandas, especially for bridal hairstyles. She initiated her business with the support of Kashf Foundation. Taking a loan from Kashf helped her to account for expenses she thought she could never bear. She is striving hard to meet her family expenditures. She is responsible for providing her family a good environment, with good food, clothing, and education.

Zatoon needs a loan of PKR 25,000 to buy raw material for embellishment (colorful threads, beads, mirrors, and pearls). It would increase her sales and profits. She is in her 2nd loan cycle with a good repayment history.
