Ishrat's story

Ms. Ishrat is a 41-year-old widow; she has been doing a business of selling vegetables for the past two years. She is very enthusiastic in her business of selling vegetables and manages to earn a reasonable amount of money to support her family. She is a loving mother of three daughters and is trying hard to fulfill their basic necessities through her business.

For the improvement of her business, Ishrat contacted Kashf Foundation and applied for a loan of Rs. 20,000 to purchase sacks of vegetables such as onions, potatoes and ginger. This will help her to meet market demands consistently.

Ishrat dreams to provide a quality education to her children through all her hard work.
