Farah is aged 35 and lives with her four children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband has been selling fresh seasonal fruits for many years in his hometown. He uses a four-wheel manual cart for selling, like a hawker. Due to the freshness of his fruit, he has acquired a regular list of customers and makes enough to contribute to the family income. Due to his reputation, the demand for his fruit has increased and by noon his stock has run out.

Farah is receiving a loan for her husband’s fruit selling business so he will be able to buy fruit in greater quantity and an equilibrium scale for weighing. Now he can sell fruit till evening and can generate more income by selling more fruit.

Farah wants to save the excess profit amount so she can utilize these savings for future sudden needs and for her children's education.
