A loan of $950 helped a member to buy fresh seasonal fruits for fruit-selling business.


Nasreen's Group's story

Nasreen, age 49 (shown holding the Asasah Passbook in the picture), is requesting a loan for her husband's fruit vending business. Her husband, M. Y., buys fresh fruits from the fruit markets at cheap rates and then sells them in different areas of the community from his four-wheel cart. People come to buy fruits from him because of their freshness and good quality. With the loan, he will buy fresh seasonal fruits in bulk quantities and increase his sales. Nasreen is confident that this loan investment will be beneficial for her husband and for the family, and that he will be able to lift up his business successfully by increasing his sales to many more customers.

They have three sons, two of whom work. The youngest, age 15, still lives at home. The family lives in a city named Sahiwal in Pakistan. Nasreen and her husband couldn’t provide education facilities to her children due to their limited financial resources. The children left their school after completing fifth grade.

Nasreen is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her fourth loan application. In previous loan years, she has always paid her installments on time and has never missed a meeting.
