She makes enough to provide for her family.

To keep her store fully stocked, she requested a loan of 30,000 PKR which she will use to buy packs of rice, sugar and flour from the market at lower rates. In this way, she will be able to meet the increasing demand consistently. She wishes to utilize part of her revenues to increase her business capital.
