Rasoolan's Group's story

Rasoolan is 27-year-old woman. She is from the city called Borewala, in Pakistan. (Borewala is famous for its shrines.) She is an uneducated lady. Her parents couldn’t send her to school because they have a big family to support. She spent her time at home and did household work. She got married at the age of 18 to a man whose name is M. R..

Rasoolan gave birth to four children: two sons and two daughters. Her elder son reads in 2nd standard and the others have no occupation. Rasoolan is a very talented lady; she manages her clothes-selling business. She receives order from her neighbors and relatives. She purchases clothing from different cities (especially Multan & Lahore) because of their cheap rates and good designs. She has been operating this business for the last 3 years. Her income helps her to share the financial burden with her husband.

Her husband sells vehicle tyres (rubber edging for wheels) in the market. He has been in this business for over 25 years. He has obtained a good reputation among his customers. He sells quality materials in his shop which attracts more customers.

Rasoolan has been a client of Asasah (a micro-finance institute in Pakistan) for the last three years. She is applying for a loan for the fourth time to purchase tyres in bulk to expand her husband’s business.
