Akbar's Group's story

Akbar is a resident of Borewala, a city of shrines in Pakistan. She has two sons; one of them is getting his education while the other helps his father in his snack-selling business.

Akbar’s family is very poor and her husband and son work very hard to support their family. They go to different areas of the city all the day to sell their snacks and make an income which, however, is insufficient for the whole family.

Akbar has applied for a loan from Asasah for her husband who will buy the snacks in bulk to increase his sales. She is hopeful that this investment will make her family’s life easier by increasing her household income.

Akbar also operates a little sewing business to help her family financially.

In this group: Akbar , Sugran, Haleema, Rubina
