Musarrat's story

Ms. Musarrat is a 26-year-old married woman. She helps her husband to run a grocery store located outside of their home. When the couple started their relation with Kashf five years ago, their store was small with very few items. They wanted to increase the range of products but the lack of funds made this almost impossible. Mussarat borrowed some funds from Kashf in anticipation of business improvement. Over time, they have added new items to the store and it has become popular in the community. They want to increase their inventory since the population of their neighborhood has increased in recent years. Currently they have applied for a loan of 30,000 (PKR) which they will use to add new racks (for increased storage capacity) and to purchase stocks of rice and sugar.

Prior to the relation with Kashf, none of Ms. Musarrat’s four children went to school. Now, the youngest daughter is the first child of the family to receive formal education. The family is living a much better life than before because they are able to meet their expenses easily and to maintain a good standard of living.
