Farzana's Group's story

Farzana is 35 years old and is married to N. H.. They have lived in Borewala, Pakistan, for the last four years. She is the mother of two daughters who are of 5 and 3 years old and have not yet started going to school. She has a wish to send them into school so they never have to face the financial problems which she faced.

Farzana sews clothes for her nearby clients. Her husband is a painter who paints walls, doors and windows to order and generates income. He doesn’t get regular orders and that’s why Farzana pays full-time attention to her sewing business so she makes suitable earnings to run her household finances.

Farzana has applied for a loan for the third time from Asasah, this time to improve her sewing business. She will buy an electric sewing machine which will help her to work more efficiently. She is hopeful that her business will be in a better position and that she will be able to increase her income.
