Providing collateral-free loans and savings services catering to poor women, including a general loan and an emergency loan. This project also provides business and literacy training.
Women in Pakistan face especially formidable obstacles in their search for better lives and opportunities for themselves and their children. Pursuit of economic activities that might better their conditions is constrained not only by cultural traditions but also by lack of access to even the very modest financial resources often needed for such pursuits and to training and support services that would help assure success.
KASHF will provide small loans to women to launch new income-generating activities. Through this one year project, KASHF will help village women organize themselves and provide basic business and literacy training.
KASHF will provide loans to 60 borrowers. This will allow poor women in Pakistan to better their economic circumstances – for themselves and their families.
Kashf has enabled me to become self sufficient and now I no longer need to work for someone else…I can work at home and also look after my young children. - Ramzana Bibi, KASHF borrower
