Shamim's story

Shamim is a 50-year-old married woman who has been running a crockery sales business with the help of her husband (shown with her in the photo) for about 10 years. The couple offer various types of crockery such as glasses, dinner sets and bowls. Her husband assists her in dealing with customers and by purchasing stock of goods from the market at wholesale rates. They make sufficient income to meet their household expenses. In order to improve her business, Shamim contacted Kashf Foundation and applied for a loan of 50,000 Pakistani rupees (PKR). With this, she will be able to purchase a greater variety of crockery such as tea sets, bowls and glasses in various sizes and designs. She is in her 6th loan cycle and has a good repayment history. She is expecting a boost in her earnings and dreams of providing a better standard of living to her children.
