but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To buy stock of rice and flour from the market at lower rates.
Hajiran is a 55-year-old widow. She is a mother of three children and she is motivated to provide for her family. Hajiran has been successfully running a small general store with her son for the last ten years. The man shown in the photo is her son. Hajiran offers various goods for daily use in her store and has gained many regular customers. Her son assists in buying stocks of goods from the markets and he has maintained many contacts for the ease of cash payments. Because Hajiran wants to grow her business, she requested for a loan of PKR 30,000 to buy stock of rice and flour from the market at lower rates. She will thereby be able to meet the increasing demand consistently. She is in her second loan cycle and has shown excellent repayment behavior. Hajiran wishes to use part of the revenues to deal with personal expenses and to increase business capital.
