Saima's story

Saima is a 36-year-old married woman. She has had a business selling vegetables for many years. She is very enthusiastic in her work and manages to earn a reasonable amount of money to support her family. She is a loving mother of 5 children. She is responsible for their food, health and clothing and is trying hard to fulfill their basic necessities through her business. For the improvement for her business she contacted Kashf Foundation and applied a loan of 70,000 PKR to purchase sacks of potatoes, onions and peas to meet market demands consistently, which ultimately will enable her to cover her utility bills timely.
