Bio:
Aysha grew up in a very sheltered environment, with only one teacher in her youth encouraging her to pursue her interest in public issues. During her undergraduate studies at Mount Holyoke in the U.S., she learned about under-development and poverty around the world, but particularly in her own country of Pakistan. When she returned home, she was struck by the abundance of disadvantaged people living on the streets, so she pursued a job in the citizen sector. Dissatisfied with her work experiences, she decided to join Lahore University of Management Sciences for graduate studies. During this time, she saw Ashoka Fellow Roshaneh Zafar give a guest lecture on the work of KASHF. She was so impressed by the organization that upon completion of her degree she assumed a position there, training people and building the capacities of borrowers. Aysha’s work with KASHF served as an apprentice period, giving her time to carve out her own niche in the field, and the ability to envision her future work.
