Shamim's story

Ms Shamim is a 54-year-old married woman. She has been successfully running a small general store in the corner of her house. She has five years of experience in this field. Her husband and son also assist her by purchasing goods from the market, as her husband has maintained many contacts over the years. She is a mother of five children and is motivated to provide her family with health and good quality food and clothing.

She wants to grow her business, so she requested a loan of Rs.30,000 from Kashf Foundation to buy packs of salt, biscuits and beverages to meet the increasing demand at her store. She expects an increase in her earnings and dreams of expanding her business in the future. She is in her second loan cycle and has a good repayment history.
