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. They are currently fundraising to sustain this project, and have a current need of $10, 000.
