A loan of $1,175 helped a member purchase items for her photo frame-making business.

Asmat's Group's story

Asmat is the wife of M. U. and comes from Multan, a city famous for its shrines and sweetmeats in Pakistan. She is 40 years old, married with two children: one son and one daughter. Her husband and her kids work at a photo frame-making business. They are very talented and can frame every picture. They also do calligraphy and then sell at markets and earn income. Their earning allows them to manage the financial expenses of the family.

Asmat also operates her own decorative embroidery business. She makes embroidery on suits and earns profit. Her clientele base is made up of women. She receives order from her neighbors. Her earning allows her to share the financial burden of her family.

She has successfully repaid two loans from Asasah (a micro-finance institute in Pakistan). Now she is applying for a loan again to purchase items (mirrors and paints and paint brushes) in bulk so her family can make more frames and make calligraphy and earn a good profit from it.
