Shameem's story

Shameem is 37 years old; she started a business selling milk last year. Every morning, she milks her three cows and prepares gallons of milk that her son takes to the market, but business was not always this smooth. A year back, Shameem had only one cow. Her husband works as a welder whose income is not sufficient to meet the needs of a family of five.

Life was difficult for the family, as expenses were high and income was minimum. The family was in such circumstances when Kashf’s loan officer found Shameem. After informing her about the organization's services, the loan officer discussed different business prospects for Shameem. Listening to the different opportunities being offered to her, she borrowed 20,000 PKR from Kashf and purchased a new cow. Over time, the family has been able not only to meet basic necessities but also to make additions to their livestock. They are also planning to send their youngest son back to school; he had to leave his education due to the financial crisis at home.
