A loan of $225 helped to purchase bigger utensils and more packs of salts and spices.


Sikandar's story

Ms. Sikandar and her husband have 10 years of experience in making ‘Dahi Bhallay’, an Indian dish consisting of balls made from ground lentils, which are deep-fried and served in a yogurt sauce. The couple has worked hard to gain popularity and recognition within their town, but recent years have been challenging. With the increase in price of vegetables and lentils, the couple was barely able to produce enough to make a good sale.

Two years ago Sikandar borrowed funds for her business from Kashf Foundation in hope of its revival. Today she has been successful in consistently making sales and earning healthy revenue from the business, but they aspire to expand it in anticipation of the growing needs of their children. They have now requested for a loan worth 20,000 PKR and wish to purchase bigger utensils and more packs of salts and spices.
