Safia's story

Safia is a 30-year-old married woman living with her husband and five children. She has two daughters and three sons. Her husband runs food cart in his community. The man shown in the photo is Safia’s husband. Her husband’s income is not enough to meet the basic needs of the family members. In this tough time, Safia has decided to work to contribute in the family's income. She makes mud ovens and sells them in the local market as well as in nearby communities. Her husband also assists her in making them. Both are working together to provide a good standard of living to their children. In order to purchase an oven frame, a stock of good quality mud (soil), and buckets of paints, Safia borrowed PKR 35,000 from Kashf. It would help her to increase her earnings through her large sales. Safia has been associated with Kashf for five years. She wishes to spend part of her profits on providing a quality education to her children.
