Hajiraan's Group's story

Hajiraan (pictured with her hand raised) is a 53-year-old, married woman. She lives with her family in an area named 34-WB, which is located in a city known as Vehari in Punjab Pakistan. Vehari, she explains, is known for its agriculture industry. Hajiraan is married to F. S.. They have been living in this area for many years in a 2-room brick house. She is a housewife, who prefers to stay at home and to carry out her responsibilities at home.

Hajiraan is a new loan applicant of Asasah. She is applying for a loan for the benefit of her son, who is a butcher by profession and who runs a butcher shop in the local market to earn a living. From his shop, he sells chicken meat to his customers and thereby earns income for the family. He plans on utilizing the loan proceeds to buy chicken in larger quantities so that he can both satisfy customer demand and generate an increase in his income. He only has 2 years of experience in this business, but due to the quality and freshness of his meat, he has been able to attract a loyal client base in a short period of time. Hajiraan is hopeful that, with the loan proceeds, her son will be able to bring about positive changes to his business and to increase his monthly income.
