Zarina's story

Zarina was living a tough life some years ago; it was very difficult to bear her household expenditures. She is 42 years old, a married woman who has run a milk selling business for many years with the help of her husband. She has buffaloes for milking, and she sells the milk in her area. Her business is doing well enough to pay for her family’s expenses.

She has five children. She is a dedicated mother and wants the best for her children. She has taken many loans from Kashf Foundation. Now, she has requested a loan of 120,000 PKR to purchase one more buffalo for increasing milk sales to earn a good amount of income. This will fulfill her dream of providing better living conditions to her children.
