Sughran belongs to Pakpattan where she owns a small house of two rooms and has been living in it with her family in the area of Khanpura for the past 10 years. Pakpattan is a small city of Pakistan and known for its dairy industry. She is an old married lady, and her husband’s name is H. M. A.. Due to her older age, she spends her time at home and manages the household responsibilities. She is the mother of a son and four daughters. Her son is the eldest among her children and operates a herbal medicine business. He also treats different diseases by preparing herbal medicines.

Sughran has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the expansion of her son’s business. With the loan, he will buy different herbs to make better quality herbal medicines to treat his patients in a far better way. He has been operating this business for many years and Sughran is confident that her son’s business will improve further after the loan investment, and her family will be able to live a better life as a result.

She is a new loan user and this is her first loan application to Asasah. She hopes that it will bring good improvements to her son’s business.
