Sakeena's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase more animals to sell.

Sakeena's story

Looking for a a better life and good quality education for her 5 children are only a few but valuable factors that encouraged Sakeena to start her business of selling animals. She has done it by taking a loan from Kashf Foundation.

Sakeena is a married woman of 43 years old. She buys animals at low prices, then sells them out in the market at higher prices. She makes enough through her business to contribute to the family income. She also sells milk to generate an extra amount of income.

She wants to improve her business to support better in her household expenses. For this reason, she contacted Kashf Foundation and applied for a loan of PKR 100000 to purchase more animals to increase 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.

Sakeena feels more comfortable in wearing a veil.
