Create Economic Opportunities for Pakistani Women

$10,001 $0
Raised Remaining


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.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

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.

How will this project solve this problem?

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.

Potential Long Term Impact

KASHF will provide loans to 60 borrowers. This will allow poor women in Pakistan to better their economic circumstances – for themselves and their families.
