Shameem's story

Shameem is a 51-year-old, married woman and a mother of four children.

For the past 25 years, Shameem has been running a business of milk sales. She initiated her own business by buying a cow in milk to support her family when her husband was the only bread-earner, at that point in time. With the passage of time, her sales increased and also her income. Now, she has three cows. This has all happened due to her courage and determination.

Because of her work, she is respected in her home. She helps her husband in all family matters, as well as financial matters.

Shameem has some savings and has applied for a loan of PKR 30,000 to purchase a buffalo. She is in her seventh loan cycle with Kashf Foundation. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.
