Sarafeen
At the age of 32, Sarafeen is running a general store at the corner of her house with the support of her husband. Her husband also assists her by purchasing stocks of goods from the market as he has maintained many contacts over the years. By this time Sarafeen has attained a good number of customers. She wants to grow her business so she requested a loan of 40,000 PKR to buy packs of salts, biscuits, and beverages to meet with the increasing demand at her store. She is expecting a boost in her earnings and dreams of expanding her business in the future.
