“I live in Lahore, a large city and have six daughters. My eldest daughter has finished tenth grade and now attending a sewing course. She could not continue her education because government colleges are too far and private ones are too expensive. The other girls are in school.

I need a loan so that we can invest in my general store. I want to diversify my store and add cosmetics and cloth to the store. My store is doing well now that I have a no credit policy. Besides running the general store, I also design traditional textiles and sell to rich women in Lahore. I actually started with my business by sewing clothes. My husband’s government income was not enough to make ends meet and I literally knocked on people’s doors to give me clothes to sew. I believe that my enterprising spirit will help me go a long way.”
