Irshad's Group's story

Irshad is a resident of Lahore, the second largest city in Pakistan and well known for its history and the hospitality of its people. Irshad is 53 years old and cannot work at this old age, but stays at home and carries out her responsibilities of a housewife well. She has given birth to two daughters and two sons. Both sons left their education after completing 10th standard because their family needed their financial support. Both have a motor workshop where they repair, specifically, motorbikes. Her elder daughter got her education up to the 14th standard and teaches in a private school as a teacher. Her youngest daughter is studying in the 10th standard.

Irshad's husband has a construction supplies business, but at the old age of 60 he can’t work full-time. Irshad has applied for a loan from Asasah for her sons who want to start a motorbike spare-parts sales business. With the loan amount, they will buy spare parts for motorbikes which they will sell from their motor workshop. They have been running their motor workshop for over five years and Irshad is hopeful that this investment will prove beneficial for their business. This is the 1st time that Irshad has applied for a loan to any MFI and she hopes that it will be a long term relationship between her and Asasah.
