Balqees's story

Balqees is 34 years old and mother of two children. Her husband sells crockery, but his income is not sufficient for family, so Balqees established a small general store in a corner of her home. It has been 16 years since she started her business. Her son also assists her by dealing with the customers. She believes in keeping the shop open for the maximum number of hours to deal with the maximum number of customers. People prefer to shop at her store for buying products of daily use.

Balqees has gradually improved her business with the support of Kashf Foundation. Currently she has applied for a loan of Rs 30,000 so that she can buy pulses (pulses are edible legume seeds, such as lentils, beans and chickpeas), sugar, cold drinks, etc. She has been in association with Kashf for three years and dreams to provide her children with a prosperous and bright future.
