Pathways & Pursestrings

In 2008, Mennonite Economic Development Association (MEDA), an international development agency, partnered with Kaarvan Crafts Foundation to run a project in Punjab and KPK, whereby women from low-income, under privileged areas would be capacitated to become economic actors. By end of 2012, the Pathways and Purse strings project ran successfully in over 300 villages across 7 districts. A total of 8184 women were trained and capacitated in this project.

Basically, the Female Sales Agents sub-contracted work to the Women Embellishers making sure that the clothing orders were completed and checking the quality of work carried out by them.

Kaarvan believes in sustaining relationships even after the project. In 2016 the Monitoring & Evaluation department connected back with Female Sales Agents to check in and see how the women’s future had evolved and what they are currently doing.
