A loan of $600 helped to purchase packs of flour, oil, salt and spices.

Shagufta's story

Shagufta, age 41, is running a food stall in her street with the support of her husband. She makes delicious "gol gappy," a popular street food in Pakistan. It consists of a round, hollow puri, fried crisp and filled with a mixture of flavored water ("pani"), tamarind chutney, potato, onion and chickpeas. It is generally small enough to fit completely into one's mouth.

Shagufta has worked hard to gain popularity and recognition within her town. Today, she is successful in consistently making sales and earning 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 60,000 PKR from Kashf Foundation. She is in her 8th loan cycle with a good repayment history. She wishes to spend part of her revenue on expanding her business.
