Sakeena is a 45-year-old married woman and the mother of four children. A year ago she started up a poultry business as her husband’s income is insufficient to bear their household expenditures alone. She makes a good amount of income to contribute to the family income.

For the improvement of her business she contacted Kashf Foundation and applied for a loan of Rs. 40,000. She intends to use this loan amount to build a shed roof for her chickens and to purchase a stock of feed. She is in her fifth loan cycle with good credit history. She is expecting a boost in her earnings and dreams of expanding her business in the future.
