A loan of $600 helped a member purchase a new rickshaw for driving.

Jamila's Group's story

Jamila applied for a loan from Asasah to financially assist her husband with buying a new auto rickshaw for him. She lives with her family in a city called Borewala, which is located in Punjab, Pakistan.

A very talented and caring lady, Jamila owns a clothes-selling business. She purchases clothes from Multan and Lahore (famous for its textiles) and sells them in her native city of Borewala. Her clientele base is her neighborhood. She specifically sells ladies clothes. She has now started selling shawls (worn by women over the shoulders or head) as well. She does this work to make her family’s life easier.

Her husband's name is W. A. and he is a driver for a trade. He has driven a rented rickshaw for the last three years. She is hopeful that this investment will prove helpful for her husband’s business. He will be able to drive as much as he wants and increases his income without paying rent.
