Safia's Group's story

Safia, a resident of Borewala (which is famous for its shrines) Pakistan, is the wife of M. A. and the mother of five children. All of them are enrolled in a school and are getting an education. She owns a small house of two rooms and has been living in it with her family for over fifteen years. A very caring and loving lady, Safia operates a cart making (weaving a cart frame with rope) business. Her business provides major support to her family. She fills carts on order and receives income which she uses to pay for the utilities and for the education expenses of her kids. Her husband is involved in a rice selling business. He purchases the rice sacks from the market and supplies them to the grocery shops and generates income. Safia has completed two loans from Asasah and now is applying for the third time to invest the capital in her husband’s business so he can purchase the rice sacks and expand his business.
