A loan of $425 helped to buy materials to make shoes.


Musarrat's story

Ms. Musarrat has been making shoes for the last six years. During the year she has experienced low capital because of many problems receiving timely payments. As a result, she was unable to expand her business activities. Since she was afraid to take informal loan from relatives, she contacted Kashf foundation upon the suggestion of her neighbor. She is an energetic person and eager to support her family. As a widow and a mother of six children, she is responsible for fulfilling the basic necessities (food, health, and education) and improving their standard of living.
Her children help her to make shoes. With this support of Kashf Foundation (her 5th loan) she is fulfilling her dreams and is able to manage her children’s education. Her loan request of 40,000 PKR will be used to buy additional shoe materials (leather, plastic soles, etc). In this way she can handle the growing demand of her shoes in the market and, as a result, better support her family.
