Musarat's story

Ms. Musarat is a 41-year-old married woman. She has been making samosas, which is a fried or baked pastry with a savory filling (such as spiced potatoes, onions, and ground chicken), for the past three years. She sells it to the people of her community and in the local market. Her husband is employed at a small general store and does not earn enough income to provide his family with bread and butter. This compelled her to initiate her own business to support her family.

Musarat has five children. She is motivated to provide them with a beautiful life including good education, food, and clothing. In order to meet customers’ demands time after time, she needs to purchase packs of oil, salt, and spices. For this she applied for a loan of Rs 20,000 from Kashf Foundation. She is in her second loan cycle with a good repayment history. She hopes to get an increase in her sales and desires to use the earned profits for her children’s educations.
