ServisServis is one of the largest footwear manufacturers in Pakistan, with almost 40% of the market share for footwear exports.

Before MDF partnered with Servis, there were hardly any examples of women’s only work spaces in the leather sector in Pakistan. MDF and Servis partnered to provide better employment opportunities for women.

Pakistan’s manufacturing sector faces a number of social challenges regarding female employment and these affect both employers and employees. Such challenges include; high staff turnover due to lack of day care facilities, lack of skilled women to supervise female staff, and a lack of separate work facilities for women.

MDF partnered with Servis to set up a women’s only stitching line, a day care centre, and to help train supervisors.
