Gulshan's story

Gulshan is a 56-year-old married woman. She is a mother of six children. Three of them are school going while others help Gulshan in her business.

Two years ago, she faced a very difficult time because the income earned from her husband was not sufficient to meet the expenses of the household. She didn’t lose hope and contacted Kashf Foundation upon the advice of her neighbor to initiate her own sweater-knitting business. She bought bundles of wool in different colors from the market at lower rates and started knitting for the people living around her. She now has a good client list; most of her clients are her neighbors.

She has gradually improved her business. Now she requested a loan of PKR 20,000. She is going to use this loan to buy packs of needles and bundles of wool in different colors to increase her sales to the local market during winter season. She intends to use the earned profits on her children’s education and house improvement.
