Shabnam's Group's story

Shabnam is a wife of M. K. and lives in Lahore, Pakistan. Lahore is famous for its historical places and its Punjabi foods. She has given birth to five children: four sons and one daughter. Her elder son reads in 8th standard, and the next eldest reads in 7th standard. The youngest two read in 4th standard. Her daughter reads in kindergarten. Shabnam and her husband take care of their family and are trying to give their children a good future. Her husband sells construction supplies. He has 12 years of experience in this business, and has a good number of customers. His earnings allow him to meet the financial expenses and to pay for the education expenses of their kids. Shabnam is applying for the first time to Asasah (a microfinance institute in Pakistan) to purchase the construction supplies (cement and bricks) to expand her husband’s construction supplies business. She is a member of a group of four people.

In this group: Shabnam, Naseem, Bilquis, Zahida
