Zahida Parveen's Group's story

Zahida parveen is a 33 year old woman and resides in Lahore in Pakistan. Lahore is famous for its historical places and its Punjabi foods. She is a seamstress and offers her services in the community. She sews clothes for her neighbors and earns a good income. Her customers are very happy with her. She utilizes her income to pay for the utilities expenses.

She is a mother of five children: one son and four daughters. All of her children are enrolled in school and are getting an education. Her husband's name is S. A., and he has a ready made garment sales business. He purchases the garments from different cities (Multan and Faisalabad) because of cheap prices and good quality. He has been in this business for over 12 years.

Zahida has successfully repaid her first loan to Asasah (a microfinance institute in Pakistan). Now she is applying again for a loan to purchase more ready made garments to expand her husband’s business. She belongs to a group of four members.
