Hi All, just in case anyone is interested here is another sewer looking for a loan!

Jabeen Gull is an inhabitant of Rehman Ganj in Lahore. She is 44 years old and married with one son and two daughters. All of her children are getting an education from colleges. Her elder daughter who is 20 is continuing her studies and also works as a teacher in a local school. Her daughter is bearing her all her own educational expenses. Her husband works as a salesman in a garment shop and gets 11,000 rupees (around $112) per month. Jabeen gets damaged clothing from factories which she then alters and repairs and then re-sells them from a stall in Anarakali Bazaar every Sunday. She manages to earn 10,000 rupees per month on average. She has had this business for the past eight years. Her other daughter and son suffer from an illness and have had several operations in government hospitals and now continue to receive medical treatment every six months. With the current household income, they are just about managing their expenses. She wants to earn more and wants to buy a jockey machine. She has applied for loan. She could then work more efficiently and sew more clothes with better quality and her daughters whenever free, could also help her in sewing clothes. I have seen a lots of ups and down but I continually provided study resources to my kids, she said.

Just as a point of interest, as a group we have raised £167 so far and that doesn't count those members who haven't linked their loans into the group! I am really pleased with that and really proud of the difference we are making!

Hi All, we have had another repayment so "our" total is now £6.48!!

Here is another sewer looking for a loan.........

Kousar Shoaib is 41 and married with two sons and one daughter. She lives with her family in an area called Badami Bagh, which is in the city of Lahore. All of her children are in school and their school fees are 2,000 rupees per month. She wants to provide them with a good education and wants to see them as educated persons. Kousar and her husband both work as tailors from home. They make made to measure clothing as well as offering repairs and alterations and earn around 18,000 rupees (around £110) per month in total. Initially she was working with a manual sewing machine which was time consuming and required a lot of energy. She has one jockey (electric) machine and wants to buy another so she and her husband both can work and sew more clothes. She has requested a loan which she will pay in 17 installments. She will buy jockey (electric) machine, cloth and sewing supplements.

If you'd like to help get in touch!!

Best Rosemary
