Zikran's Group's story
Zikran is 49 years of age but she looks ten years older than her age. Her financial problems grew her old before her time. She is a citizen of a city called Borewala in Pakistan, where she lives with her family. Her husband sells timbers and her two sons also help their father in his business. Zikran is a seamstress. She takes orders from her nearby customers and fulfills them to earn an income. However, her family is barely able to fulfill their basic living needs, even though everyone in the family puts forth their best effort to improve their businesses. Zikran has applied for a loan from Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy timbers in bulk and improves his sales. She is hopeful that by investing this loan in her husband’s business, she will be able to make positive changes in her family’s standard of living and she will be able to marry her daughter, who is now of marriage age.
