Musarrat is 46 years old and lives along with her family in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.
The financial condition of her family is not good. Her husband has grown old but even in his old age he is working in his scrap business. He is a hawker and purchases scrap iron, plastic, waste papers, etc. going door to door. He uses his four-wheel cart to carry the scrap goods from one place to another. His cart got damaged due to loading and unloading so he wants to repair it and change its tires. But he does not have sufficient money saved.
Therefore, Musarrat has requested a loan so that her husband would be able to repair his four-wheel cart and buy scrap goods to continue his business.
Musarrat hopes that he will earn profits to increase their savings and provide for the better treatment of their elder son.
