Huma Gul - -> How a dream comes true!

Her father’s only asset at home was an “Old Sewing Machine” when Huma applied for admission at ZABTech. She belonged to a very poor family of district Hyderabad and her father was only bread earner of nine family members. Huma was oldest amongst nine siblings of her father. She realized difficulties of her father, which family was facing due to chronic poverty. She said that “Being elder daughter, I could read the face of father who was struggling to feed us. I was close to my father therefore; my father always shared the problems he was facing”. One fine morning, she discussed with her father about her passion of learning in dressmaking and tailoring. At that time her great challenge was to get enrolled in any technical institute. One day she learned about a sponsored training program at ZABTech Hyderabad Institute. She visited institution and applied to the course of her first choice. Her great surprise was that she not only got admission but took distinction in test for admission. She was in top ten candidates out of 260.

She never missed any class and found herself amongst loving and caring facilitation team at ZABTech Institute. Her teacher gave her idea of a small female entrepreneurship from home. She obliged and started her home based small entrepreneurship activity. She started locally by posting advertisement sheet outside main door of her house. “ HumaGul’s Ready Made Dresses” became famous due to her skills, within small passage of time. Now she became supporter of family besides learning dressmaking and relevant skills at ZABTech. She didn’t stop there,but purchased new equipment/tools to enhance her trade at home. After certification in fashion designing trade from ZABTech, “HumaGul’s Ready Made Dresses” became “G and B Collections” on facebook. The G and B Collection became famous overnight due to influential power of social media.

HumaGul is now a leading lady in female entrepreneurship in poorest areas of Sindh. She is now arranging exhibitions on regular basis in different Malls and earning money as well as respect in society. When she started she had only one old machine at home & her family income was only Rs. 7000/=, but now she had a fully equipped technical vocation center & earning is above Rs. 40,000/=. Her family is now out of poverty and living aneconomically sustainable life.
