From Behind the Veil

Note from the Field, USAID (July 2005)

The majority of women in rural Pakistan are marginalized by poverty, home confinement, and geographic isolation. Although talented em­broiderers, they face significant logistical and societal constraints to reaching high-value urban markets. MEDA and its Pakistani partner, the Entrepreneurship and Career Development Institute (ECDI), are assisting these women to improve their economic and social situa­tions through sustainable assistance that targets all parts of the em­broidered garments value chain.
