Bushra, a 35-year-old married mother of four children, has been selling animals for about two years. She buys baby goats at low prices, raises them, and then sells them in the market at higher prices near the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha. She earns a good profit from her business, and because of her work, is respected in her home. She also helps her husband in all family and financial matters, and is especially proud of sending her son to college for further studies.

Bushra has gradually improved her business with the support of Kashf Foundation. Now requesting her fourth loan for Rs. 30,000 to purchase two more goats, she expects a boost in her business income as she expands.
