Kalsoom's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more spools of thread in different colors and packs of lace and zippers.
Ms. Kalsoom is a 23-year-old married woman and a mother of two. She had a difficult time after her husband's business failure. She decided to work with her husband to support her family for their better future. Eight years ago, she began stitching work in her house. She stitches clothes for the people living around her house and uses the income to support her entire family. However, due to lack of availability of funds, she is unable to meet the daily demands of her customers. So, she applied for a second loan of Rs. 30,000 with Kashf Foundation. She intends to use this loan amount to buy more spools of thread in different colors and packs of lace and zippers to create a means of increasing revenue, so that she may be able to generate a healthier source of income.
