Riffat's Group's story

Riffat is married to S. and belongs to a small city near to Lahore Pakistan called Kot radha kishen. She owns a three room brick house where she lives with her husband and five children. Four of them are daughters and one is a son. Her eldest daughter works in a factory. Her all other children stay at home. Riffat and her husband couldn’t educate their children due to poor financial conditions. Her husband works as a laborer. It is very difficult to survive as a laborer because it’s not a permanent job: many times her husband doesn’t get work regularly. Riffat wants her husband to start his own grocery shop so he makes a regular income. Therefore, she has applied for a loan from Asasah. With the loan amount her husband will buy groceries in bulk and start a grocery shop in the nearby market. Riffat is hopeful that her husband will be able to establish his business very soon and start earning a regular income. She wants to marry her eldest daughter who is now of 24 years old. She hopes that with the increased income she will be able to do this soon. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 5th loan cycle. She has proved herself as a very responsible client and never missed any meetings.
