A loan of $375 helped to purchase a greater variety of clothes for winter season.

Suriya's story

Ms Suriya is a 51-year-old, married woman. When Kashf’s loan officer found Suriya, she was living in an old, shabby house with limited basic necessities and no source of income. Her husband was jobless and frustrated, her children were not going to school, and life seemed almost hopeless.

A loan from the foundation helped them renew their clothing business, which had almost died. Every day Suriya sets out in the marketplace, hoping to take as many orders as possible. She has recently requested a loan of 35,000 PKR, to purchase a greater variety of clothes for the winter season. She says life has never been like this before. Her children are going to school, and next year her daughter will appear in the board exams. Her husband is saving so he may get his house renovated next year.
