Shamim's story

Shamim is a 48 year-old woman, who is married and has five children. Her husband is very hardworking and loves his family very much. He is involved in his own business earning a regular income for the family.

Shamim's husband is involved in manufacturing and selling wooden furniture such as single beds, tables, etc. He started this business over fifteen years ago. Her husband had previously obtained loans for his business; he took two previous loans for his business of making furniture. Today, he has many regular customers and also takes orders from other cities. This business yields a good income for him, but his family's needs are increasing day by day and he needs to earn more money. Now he wants to buy more raw materials for making furniture in order to cope with the increasing demand.

Therefore, Shamim came to BRAC Pakistan and wishes to obtain a loan to buy raw materials for making furniture. Shamim hopes that this loan will prove beneficial and productive for her husband's business as well as for her family.
