Shayasta
Shayasta had a difficult time after her husband's business failure. She decided to work to support her family. So eight years ago she began sewing shoes in her house to earn money to contribute to the family’s income.


Shayasta receives orders from the shoe factory. But because she will have a shortage of materials to fill her orders on time, she is applying for a 40,000 PKR loan from Kashf Foundation to buy spools of thread and leather in larger quantities. She hopes to increase her earnings and wants to spend part of her new profits on expanding her business.
