Roshaneh Zafar is the Founder and Managing Director of Kashf Foundation. She established Kashf after meeting with Dr. Muhammad Yunus of the Grameen Bank. Ms. Zafar has won many awards and recognitions for her contributions to the field of social entrepreneurship and women’s development.
Kashf Foundation is Pakistan’s first specialized microfinance institution. It was started in 1996 as an action research program, with the aim of alleviating poverty by providing high-quality affordable financial and non-financial services to low-income households, especially women, in order to build their capacity and enhance their economic role. Although Kashf began its journey as a microfinance institution, today it is positioned as a wealth management group since it provides a one-window solution to its clients for protecting and managing their wealth and enhancing their productivity and resources.
