Nasreen, the wife of A. M., lives in the city of Kasur, which is famous for its sweetmeats. She and her family are involved in the business of making and selling parandas (an ornament used by women to tie back their hair). This is a very famous ornament which is a big trend in eastern countries. Females love to wear parandas of different colors by matching them with their dresses.
Nasreen and her husband are experts in the making of different kinds of parandas, from simple to embroidered to colorful ones. They have been in this business for the past six years and it has always given them a good profit. Nasreen has applied for a loan from Asasah to buy thread, beads and tassels in bulk in order to make a large quantity of parandas from them. Nasreen is hopeful that this investment will enable them to increase their sales and earn a good profit as well.
