Alam's Group's story

Alam lives in the small city of Vehari, Pakistan. She has a 3-roomed house and lives in it with her family. She has a daughter who is 17 years old and studies in 10th standard. Her husband is working in the government sector, but his income alone is not enough to fulfill the basic needs of the family. This is why Alam also works to share the financial burden of the family. She operates a blanket-selling business. She has been doing this work for over 10 years.

Alam’s business is now established and she has maintained a good customer base from different cities such as Lahore, Faisalabad and Islamabad. Now she receives a good number of orders. To fulfill those orders on time he has to have the blankets in large quantities, otherwise it will negatively affect her business. Therefore, she has applied for a loan from Asasah. With the loan amount she will buy blankets in larger quantities, which will minimize her cost and improve her chances of making more income.

Alam’s only daughter, named Madiha, has a dream to get higher education. For that purpose, Alam works very hard to provide her with all the facilities of a good & quality education. Alam is in her 2nd loan cycle. She fulfilled her responsibilities as a loan user very well last year and paid all the installments on time.
