Naseen
Naseen is a 57-year-old married woman. She has been successfully running a small general store with her husband in a corner of her house. She has gained six years of experience in this field. Her husband also assists her by purchasing goods from the market as he has maintained many contacts for years. She is the mother of five children and is motivated to provide her family with good quality food, clothing and health. She wants to grow her business so she requested a loan of PKR 10,000 to buy packs of salt, biscuits and oil to meet with the increasing demand at her store. She is expecting a boost in her earnings and dreams of expanding her business in the future.
