Zakia's story

Financial constraints alongside the want for a better life and good quality education for her 2 children are only a few but valuable factors that encouraged Zakia to start her business selling animals by taking a loan from Kashf Foundation. Zakia is 51 years old; she is a married woman. The person shown in photo is husband of Zakia, who assists her in business by purchasing and selling calves. They buys animals (calves) at low prices, brings them up and then sells them out in the market at higher prices. Zakia 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 100000 to purchase more buffalo 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.
