Shehnaz's story

Shehnaz is a 41-year-old married woman. She lives in the suburbs of Faisalabad City in a two bedroom house with her husband and five children. She runs a small town grocery store. Twice every month Shehnaz stocks her shop with high demand products that she books at the wholesalers on a week’s notice. She is an ambitious lady who works hard to provide for her family. Her husband works in a private office but his income is barely sufficient to meet the family’s needs. Shehnaz borrowed funds from Kashf to invest in her business five years ago when it was almost at the verge of liquidation. She worked hard in her store and eventually sales increased. Recently she has requested for another loan of PKR 40,000 to purchase sacks of rice, flour, and sugar and packs of beverages. It will enable her to improve her sales which will help her bring in more cash. Shehnaz says she wants to send her children to high school for further studies so they will never live in poverty like their mother.
