A loan of $275 helped to purchase a large quantity of materials for making footballs.

Gulzar's story

Gulzar is a 47-year-old married woman. She has been in the business of making footballs for 5 years. She stitches balls of different sizes and sells them in her community and in the local market. She is famous in her town for providing good quality footballs, and she earns enough to bear the expenses of her family members. She is contributing much to the family income, as her husband’s income is not sufficient to fulfill the demands of his family members alone.

Gulzar is a motivated mother of four children. She is responsible for providing them with good quality food, education, and clothing. For the improvement of her business, she contacted a Kashf Foundation business development officer for a loan of 25,000 PKR. The loan will be used to purchase rubber bladders, leather covers, and spools of thread in large quantities, which will allow her to cater more customers without delay. She hopes to expand her business, which ultimately will help to generate more cash. She would like to spend part of her anticipated profits on her children’s education.
