The micro-finance loan that she availed from Khushhali Microfinance Bank helped her buy furniture and stationary for her school.Every morning she leaves her house at around 7am and covers a taxing commute to reach her school where she is currently training teachers in the morning and coaching children in the evening.

KanwalZulfiqar, a loving mother of three children, strongly believes that despitethe fact that people are now realizing the significance of education in Pakistan, there still needs to be a mass awareness campaign for parents, focusing on the benefits of education, especially for girls.
