Salma's Group's story

Salma is the wife of M. N. and resides in a city called Multan, famous in Pakistan for its sweetmeats and shrines. She is 22 years old and has one son. She got her education up to 5th standard but couldn’t get further education due to poor financial conditions in her family. She mostly spent time with her mother and learnt the skill of embroidery from her.

Her mother worked at a boutique business. Salma got the experience of running a boutique from her and now, by the grace of God, she has started doing the same business after her marriage. Now she makes dresses to display in her boutique and attract customers.

Her son is just one year old; his name is Ghulam Jailani. She wants a good future for him, and that’s why she works hard to fulfill that dream. Her husband is a tailor by trade. He runs a tailoring shop in the nearby market where he sews specifically men's clothes and earns income.

Salma has applied for a loan from Asasah for her boutique business. With the loan amount she will buy cloth, colored thread, and sketches in large quantity and make more dresses to display in her boutique. She is on her 2nd loan. In her first year of loan experience she has paid her installments on time and never missed any meeting.
