A loan of $950 helped a member to purchase another dairy cow to increase profit.


Ashrafi's Group's story

Ashrafi is a resident of the mid-sized city of Riwind in Pakistan. She owns a small house with two rooms. She has been living in it with her family for over ten years. Her husband's name is M. A. and he is involved in a dairy business. He has a dairy cow from which he gets milk to sell to the local community. His income helps him to manage the financial expenses of the family.

On seeing the hard work and devotion of her husband, Ashrafi decided to share the financial burden with him and started sewing clothes three years ago. Originally she made her relatives use her to sew their clothes and, seeing the satisfactory results, they have now paid her and given her more of their clothes to sew. She also, now, receives orders from her neighbors and charges them Pak Rs. 100 to 150. Now they can both manage their financial expenses efficiently using their earnings.

Ashrafi is applying for a loan from Asasah to invest capital in her husband’s business so he can purchase another dairy cow and increases his profits.
