Mukhtayaran's Group's story

Mukhtayaran is 50 years old and lives in Lahore, Pakistan. Lahore is famous for its historic places and its Punjabi foods.

Mukhtayaran is an uneducated lady, but she wants to give her children a good education. To achieve this goal she operates a business selling quilts. Her business grows in the winter season, but in the summer season she sells pillowcases and bed sheets. Her business gives her an income of PKR 8,000 every month. Her income makes her family more confident.

She has seven children: four sons and three daughters. Her first two sons help her in her quilt-selling business. The others are enrolled in a school and are getting an education. Her husband, L. A., is also very supportive of her business. He sometimes takes time out from his work and helps her sell quilts. He is a mason by profession. Their combined earnings allow their family finances to run smoothly.

Mukhtayaran has successfully repaid her two loans to Asasah (a microfinance institution in Pakistan). Now she is applying for a loan to purchase pillowcases and bed sheets in bulk to expand her sales and to earn a good profit.
