Zahida's story

Ms. Zahida is a bold and energetic married woman. She has been in the business of a beauty parlor for the past three years. She started a parlor in a small corner of her two-room house.

She is working to support her family financially. She is a mother of two. She is responsible to provide them with the basic necessities of life. She feels happy to be sending her children to school through all her hard work. Zahida works tirelessly to keep the business running because she is the only breadwinner of the house.

She told Kashf that it was getting extremely difficult for her to manage the family, as the parlor was running on minimum necessities and her clients were hesitant to avail services as there are lots of competitors in the community. That’s when she took a loan worth Rs 30,000 from Kashf and reported that she will be investing the amount in buying more cosmetics and some furniture for the parlor to deal with more customers at a time.

She is hopeful to get an increase in the number of customers, and she intends to utilize part of the income in buying more furniture and utensils for her parlor.
