Naseem's story

Naseem is a 36-year-old, married woman. She is running a business of ‘Pakora’ making and sales. Pakora is a dish consisting of pieces of vegetable and chicken, dipped in a gram flour or 'besan.' She has been doing this business with the support of her husband for the past many years. The man shown in the photo is Naseem’s husband. They earn enough through this business to contribute to the family's income.

In order to inflate their sales, Naseem needs to purchase a stock of gram flour, along with packs of oil, salt, and spices. For this, she contacted Kashf Foundation and applied for a loan of PKR 40,000. She is in her sixth loan cycle, with good repayment history. She wishes to spend part of the revenue on the betterment of her family members.
