Ms. Sughran is a very active and hard-working lady and she has been been selling milk for the last six years to support her family. Her husband’s income was not enough to fulfill their basic necessities. But her efforts succeeded and now she has 12 buffaloes for this purpose and has become the main earner of her family.
She is a responsible mother of two sons and three daughters. She is worried about their future and wants to provide them with good education. For this she requires expanding her business and needs a loan of Rs. 30,000 to buy more buffaloes to increase in quantity of sales of milk. She hopes to have a good experience with this new loan.
