A loan of $275 helped to buy bundles of cloths of better material.


Sadia's story

Sadia is 29 years old. She and her younger brother are the breadwinners of their family of eight.

Every morning, Sadia gets ready to leave for the marketplace, where she spends the entire day going from one shop to another. Her job is to provide fabric to shopkeepers; if they like the material, they reward her by placing larger orders.

Life has not always been so mobile for Sadia. Three years ago she stayed at home, while her family was living hand-to-mouth. None of her siblings went to school and even basic household necessities were difficult to obtain. These circumstances led her to take out a loan from Kashf and she started her own trading business. Today she is able to contribute to the household income which has enabled three of her siblings to go to school.

Sadia has approached Kashf again, hoping for a third loan of Rs 25,000 so that she may buy bundles of cloths of better material to help her increase her profit margin.
