Bibirani's story

Bibirani is a 39-year-old married woman. The man shown in the photo is her husband; Bibirani appears in a veil due to her traditional limitations. She has been growing vegetables with her husband in their back yard for 22 years. Every morning they pluck fresh vegetables and take them to a small shop where they sell them along with some fruit that they purchase from a wholesaler. Recent years have been challenging for the couple as their produce is decreasing at a fast rate and their shop is not making enough sales to support their family of 6 members. Bibirani is a mother of four children, three of whom go to school; but the high cost of education is over-burdening their finances. She has requested a loan of PKR 20,000 from Kashf and wishes to purchase fertilizers and high quality seeds in anticipation of a better yield. Speaking to a loan officer, she said that her eldest son has recently joined them in business and will help improve productivity.
