Akbari
Ms Akbari is 30 years old and a married woman. She is a mother of one child. She is a hard-working mother, who is helping her family by providing tailoring services in her community. She has been doing this for the past five years. She very well knows the techniques of stitching. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns enough to lead a decent life.

To help her continue the operations of her business, she requested a loan of PKR 30,000. She will use the loan to buy a stock of thread in different colors, with packs of zippers, buttons and needles, to satisfy the increasing demand. In addition to repaying the loan, she will use part of the revenues to deal with personal expenses.
