Rashidan's Group's story
Rashidan is a seamstress but at work she never forgets her family's needs. She starts sewing clothes after she finishes the household chores and cooking their meal. Her family loves her a lot and respects her caring nature. She makes beautiful looking clothes of the latest designs and sells them to different boutiques and ready-made garment shops in the market. Rashidan is a resident of the city called Borewala which is a small city located in the Punjab province of Pakistan. Borewala is famous for its shrines. Rashidan is married to S. A., who sells construction supplies. He has a shop in the main market which faces a heavy crowd of people. The advantage of having a shop in the busy market is that people can easily approach the shopkeepers to buy items according to their need. Rashidan has applied for a loan from Asasah to help her husband expand his business. With the loan, he will buy construction supplies such as cement, sand and bricks. Rashidan is confident that her husband will be able to increase his income by investing money in his business. Note: In the picture, the lady who holds a book (an Asasah passbook) in her hands is Rashidan.
