Mumtaz's story

Mumtaz is a 26-year-old, married woman. She has been doing a business of clothing sales for six years, with the support of her husband. She is expert in stitching clothes while her husband sells them to the people of her community and in the local market. In this way, they are able to manage their household expenses. Mumtaz is passionate about her work and client demand is strong, but business challenges, combined with family expenditures, frustrate her, nearly every day.

For this reason, she contacted Kashf Foundation and applied for a loan of PKR 20,000. The loan would help her to purchase more raw materials, such as cloth, spools of thread, and zippers in various colors, to meet the customers’ demand, time after time. She expects a boost in her earnings through her increased sales and wishes to spend part of the profits on the betterment of her family members. She dreams to expand her business, in the near future.
