Shazia's story

Ms. Shazia is a 46-year-old married woman. She has been doing a business of scrap selling for the last ten years.

She buys PET (a type of plastic) bottles from cold drinks and water, old books and copies, steel items like cans, and boxes in bulk. After proper cleaning, she sells them in her community and makes enough to contribute to the family income.

Shazia is a mother of four children; among them, two are school-going while two are married. She has gradually improved her business with the support of Kashf Foundation.

Currently, Shazia requested a loan of Rs. 45,000 to purchase more PET bottles, cans, and boxes to inflate her sales. She is in her sixth loan cycle with a good repayment history.

Shazia expects a boost in her earnings and wishes to spend part of the profits on the expansion of her business.
