Sabhagi belongs from a poor family who reside in a small town in interior Sindh called Tandoo Allah Yar. She is married and a mother to nine children, only three of whom go to school. Two of her eldest sons work for a living as labourers and collectively manage to earn around 12,000 rupees in a month. Her husband has a private job from where he earns a monthly wage of 12,000 rupees. In order to contribute to the family’s income, Sabhagi herself has also been working from home for the past eight years. She runs a small business pf making and selling patchwork quilts and applique work bed linens. She does a tremendous job of making quilt and bed covers from different coloured fabrics.
Sabhagi manages to earn only 2,000 rupees per month, on average. With a limited amount of materials and fabric, it gets extremely hard for her to increase her production. Now, in order to improve her income, she has requested for a loan. She needs to buy more fabric and sewing supplies from wholesale markets in Hyderabad. Sabhagi is hopeful that she can increase her earnings and contribute a better sum towards her household income.
