Muqadas's story

Muqadas is a 29-year-old married woman, who runs a small boutique at home to provide for her family. She purchases clothes from the market at low prices, stitches them and then sells it to the people of her locality. She always has a great product selection to offer, and earns a good income that contributes to her family's well-being.

For the improvement of her business, Muqadas has requested a loan of 70,000 PKR to buy greater variety of clothes and spools of thread in various colors, to meet the demand of customers consistently. It would help her increase the net income and enable better standard of living for her family. The man shown in the photograph is her husband.
