Sughran's story

Sughran is a 53-year-old hardworking married woman.

She initiated her business of selling milk as it was difficult to run household activities with the small income of her husband (shown in photo).

She has buffaloes and cows for milk production. Her job is to look after the buffaloes and collect the milk from them. Her husband sells the milk in nearby areas. Together, both husband and wife are supporting their family.

They need to earn more income for their everyday expenditures. Therefore, Sughran has requested 100,000 PKR to buy one more buffalo to cater to more customers and provide a better standard of living to her family members.
