A loan of $1,025 helped a member to purchase material to make shoes to sell.


Latifan's Group's story

Latifan is a 50 year-old married woman with five children. She lives in a city named Borewala (famous for its shrines) in Pakistan.


She is an active lady. Despite her old age she involves herself in a shoe making and selling business. This has become her family business. They all make the shoes and then sell them to the shoe shops. Her two daughters stay at home and manage the household chores and cook the food for the family.


They don't make just simple shoes – they also make embroidered shoes. Their earning range up to 10-15000 PKR every month.


Latifan is applying for a loan from Asasah to purchase material (glue, nails, leather and thread) so she can take orders from more shoe shops and increase her profits.


She hopes to marry her elder son and daughter with the profitable amount.
