Anwar Sultana's Group's story

Anwar Sultana is a wife of M. S. and lives in Vehari (a mid-sized city), in Pakistan. She is a
50-year-old mother of three daughters and a son. Her husband is a tailor, by profession. He occupies a room of his house and uses it as a tailoring shop. She helps her husband by sewing clothes at home, but she also prepares the embroidered dresses by receiving the orders from her neighbors. They both earn a good income from their businesses and manage the financial expenses of their home.

Their son drives an auto-rickshaw (local three-wheeled motor vehicle). Their eldest daughter completed her education up to 10th standard and now works in a local school as a teacher, on a monthly wage. The others are enrolled in school and are getting an education.

Anwar has successfully repaid her two loans to Asasah (micro-finance institute of Pakistan and a partner of Kiva). With the loan profits, she purchased a color television and an air cooler. Now she is applying for a loan, for the third time, to repair her sons’ rickshaw so he can better continue his work. She hopes to get a good profit from this loan too and has a plan to marry off her eldest daughter.
