Zarina's Group's story

Zarina is a 44-year-old married woman who lives in a city called Multan, Pakistan, famous for its shrines and sweetmeats. She owns a small house of two rooms where she lives with her seven children and her husband of over 20 years.

Zarina has five sons and two daughters: her elder son has a timber-selling business; next to him is a painter who paints walls and windows on call; the next two work in a factory on monthly wages; the youngest of her sons is free and doesn’t do anything; her daughters stay at home and help their mother in managing the household chores.

Zarina’s husband is named N. M. and he has a job in the government sector as a security guard but earns a low income.

Zarina herself owns and operates her sewing business. She does this work to share the financial burden of her husband and to make him relax from this aspect. Her care for him makes her unique and he respects her a lot.

Zarina has applied for a loan from Asasah for her elder son. With the loan, he will buy timber in bulk and increase his sales by selling to more customers. Zarina is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 3rd loan.
