Ms. Asma is a 26-year-old married woman. She had a difficult time after her husband's business failure, so she decided to initiate her own business of a general store to support her family for a better future. She has gained two years of experience in this field, and has attained a regular list of customers. However, due to lack of availability of funds, she is unable to meet the daily demands of her customers. Due to this reason, she contacted Kashf Foundation and applied for a loan of 25,000 Pakistani rupees to purchase packs of biscuits, oil and juices. It would help her to inflate her sales, which ultimately will help in increasing her profits.
