Safia's story

Safia is a 34-year-old, vigorous, married woman with eight children. A year ago she started a hand embroidery business. She is zealous about her work and her client demand is strong. But business challenges, combined with family expenditures, frustrate her nearly every day. Her husband is a laborer with a low salary. Safia’s embroidery patterns are very popular on her street and she is the best earning resource in her household. She wants to grow her business, so she requested a loan of RS 40,000 to buy raw materials. This includes thread, sequins, and pearls in large quantities to meet the increasing demand. She shared her dream of opening her own shop in the market to display her work.
