Naseem
Three years ago Naseem, a 36-year-old married woman, started her general store business at the corner of her house. Her husband assists her by purchasing stock from the market, as he has maintained many contacts over the years. This mother of two is motivated to provide her family with good quality food, clothing and health.



Naseem wants to grow her business, so she has requested a loan of PKR 25,000 to buy packs of grains, rice and flour to meet increasing customer demand. She is expecting a boost in her earnings and dreams of expanding her business in the future.
