Kousar's story

Kousar, age 41, is running a food stall in her street with the support of her husband. She makes delicious ‘Dahi Bhallay’, which is a dish consisting of balls made from ground lentils, deep fried and served in a yogurt sauce. She has worked hard to gain popularity and recognition within her town. With the increase in the price of vegetables and lentils, she was barely able to produce enough to make a good sale. Two years ago, Kousar borrowed funds for her business from Kashf Foundation, hoping to revive it. Today, she has been successful in consistently making sales and earning a healthy revenue from the business. In order to increase her sales, she needs to purchase packs of flour, oil, salt and spices. For this reason, she applied for a loan of Rs 40,000 from Kashf Foundation. She is in her third loan cycle with a good repayment history. She wishes to spend part of her revenue on expansion of her business.
