A loan of $700 helped a member purchase clothes for a clothes-selling business.

Zulaikhan's Group's story

Zulaikhan is a resident of a small city called Chichawatni, which is located in the Punjab province of Pakistan and is well known for its agriculture industry.

She is 28 years old and got married when she was only 16. She is the mother of six daughters. None of them could get an education because Zulaikhan and her husband didn’t have enough resources to pay for their school fees.

Her husband is illiterate. He sells clothes and is the only breadwinner in the family. He operates his small shop in the market. He imports clothes from Multan, Lahore and Faisalabad and sells them through his shop.

Life is not easy for Zulaikhan and her family as her husband’s income is not enough for fulfilling the basic needs of the family. Therefore, Zulaikhan has applied for a loan from Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan amount, her husband will buy clothes in bulk to reduce the cost of traveling and to offer more variety to his clients.

Zulaikhan hopes that this investment will help her husband in improving his business and her family will be able to improve its living standard. She is a new loan applicant and she is expecting that it will be a profitable experience for her.
