Yasmeen's story

Yasmeen is a 32-year-old, married woman. She has been successfully running a small general store in her community for the last six years, with the support of her husband. The man shown in the photo is Yasmeen’s husband.

Yasmeen offers various goods in her store for daily use. She has good communication skills and she counts on a good client list. Her husband is also a shopkeeper and has good marketing skills to retain customers. By now, they have become popular in their community because they provide good quality items at reasonable prices, as compared to other shopkeepers. Both are motivated to provide for their family.

For the growth of her business, Yasmeen contacted Kashf Foundation for the first time and requested a loan of PKR 25,000 to buy from the market stocks of rice and flour at lower rates. She then would be able to consistently meet the increasing customer demand. Yasmeen wishes to utilize part of the revenues to deal with personal expenses and to increase business capital.
