A loan helped to purchase more animals to inflate her sales.

Shahida's story

Financial constraints alongside the want for a better life and good-quality education for her five children are only a few but valuable factors that encouraged Shahida to start her business selling animals by taking a loan from Kashf Foundation.

Shahida is 46 years old; she is a married woman. She buys animals (calves) at low prices, brings them up and then sells them out in the market at higher prices.

She makes enough through her business to contribute in the family income. She also sells milk to generate an extra amount of income.

She needs to improve her business to bear her household expenses. For this reason, she contacted Kashf Foundation and applied a loan of PKR 60,000 to purchase more animals to inflate her sales.

She is very experienced and has good contacts in the market. With this loan, she will definitely expand her business and income level.
