Farzana's story

Farzana is a 41-year-old married woman. She is living with her husband in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of a daughter and son. She is doing embroidery work with her hands at home and financially supporting her family.
She belongs to a poor family. Her husband’s income is very poor, so she decided to start embroidery work at home. She has been learning this art since her childhood, and now she has adopted it for her profession. She has enabled herself independent and is earning sufficient income. She requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, to purchase stocks of threads, silk, fancy sequins, and pearls of various colors.
