Razia Begum's Group's story

Razia begum lives in a small city of Vehari Pakistan. A few years ago her husband died which was very difficult for her and her family but she never gave up hope. She started selling clothes, taking orders from the big shops and the families of her community and filling them with purchases made in Faisalabad (famous for its textile industry). Her only son works in a school. He had to leave his education after the death of his father. Razia begum has applied for a loan from Asasah because she wants to buy clothes in bulk for which she needs capital. With this she will be able to take larger orders and increase her income.
