Sakina is a widow with two children. She is engaged in trade. The scope of her activity is the sale of women's and children's clothing in the local market. For the past 13 years, Sakina has supported her children with the income from her work and without any relatives' help.
Sakina's son is sick. The reason she has applied for a loan at this time is to pay for his treatment. If her son were healthy, at last she would feel herself the happy mother and would continue to work with healthy enthusiasm.
