A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy groceries in bulk for her son's grocery shop.

Khursheed Muhammad Ramzan's Group's story

Twenty-five years ago Khursheed M. R. moved to Kasur, a city located in Punjab and known for its leather industry in Pakistan. Then a few years ago she lost her husband to a sudden death, so she is now a widow. She lives in a two-room brick house with her family. She couldn’t send her children to school due to poor financial conditions, so she taught her daughters the art of embroidery, which they now do to earn money for the family. She also has a son who runs a grocery shop in the market from which he sells daily use items to his customers.

Khursheed’s children are very obedient and mind everything she says. They respect her very much and take care of her in the way she takes care of them. They like to give her every happiness in life so she never thinks about her loss.

Khursheed has applied for a loan, her fifth from Asasah, for her son’s grocery business. He has been in this business for the past ten years. With the loan he will buy grocery items such as rice, lentils, cooking oil and spices, etc. in bulk quantity for his shop. Khursheed is hopeful that this investment will yield a positive impact on her son’s business. She herself has responsibly paid her previous loan installments every year and attended every meeting.
