Meena's story

Meena is a 37 year old married woman and has provided recycling services for many years. She buys plastic bottles that contained Pepsi, Coke, Mirinda (500 ml, 1 ltr, 1.5 ltr, and 2.25 ltr) and other beverages that would otherwise be trash. After proper crushing and recycling she sells them back to the people of her community. Through her business she makes enough income to contribute to her family's livelihood.

She has five children and she barely manages to satisfy their needs. She is required to provide them with good food, health and education. She needs to earn additional income to support her family well. She is in her 3rd loan cycle with Kashf foundation. Currently she has requested a loan of Rs. 35000 to buy more bottles in different sizes to increase her sales. She expects a boost in her earning and wishes to spend part of the profits on the expansion of her business.
