Azra's story

Ms Azra is a 54-year-old widow. She has been operating a business making boxes for 15 years. After her husband’s death, she faced many problems in running her household. She has five daughters and one son and there was no other source of income to provide her family with bread and butter. With the passage of time, Ms Azra has improved her business and gained a lot of regular customers. Her son also assists her with the business.

This is Ms Azra's second year with Kashf Foundation and she is happily running her business with their support. She has requested a loan of PKR 30,000 to buy bundles of thick paper at lower rates from the market to enable her to complete orders on time. Ms Azra hopes to have an increase in sales. She desires to use the earned profits on her children’s education and growth.
