Parveen Akhter's Group's story

Parveen akhter is a widow who lost her husband a few years ago as a result of his sudden death. She is 55 years of age and lives in Borewala, Pakistan with her four sons and two daughters. Three of her sons work to support the family while only her youngest son managed to get his education until the 5th standard. Parveen sells clothes to contribute financially to her family. Selling clothes proved very helpful for her family’s financial life. She has applied for a loan from Asasah to help her elder son who sells fruit from a cart. With the loan, her son will buy fresh seasonal fruits, which will help him increase his income. Parveen is hopeful that with the help of this increased income, she will be able to marry her daughter who is 21 years of age.
