Jeevan's story

Jeevan is 37 years old and the mother of six children. For the past 20 years, she has been running a milk sales business. She is running this business with the help of her husband and sons; they assist her by supplying the milk door-to-door and in the local market. She has five buffaloes and one milk cow. Because of her work, she is respected in her home. She helps her husband in all family matters as well as in financial matters.

While talking to the Kashf officer, Jeevan shared the feeling of achievement she got by sending her children to school for better education. She has some savings and has applied for a loan of 30,000 PKR to purchase another buffalo. Jeevan is in her second loan cycle with Kashf Foundation. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business. She is very thankful to Kashf for its support.
