Attia's story

Ms Attia is a 32-year-old married woman. Five years ago, Attia started her own grocery store. She was under much stress at that time so she decided to open a retail shop in a small corner of her home as her husband’s daily income was not reliable and was insufficient to meet increasing expenses of the home with the increase in the inflation rate of the country. Gradually, she has improved her business and has a reliable source of income to lead a decent life by paying her utility bills on time. To cope with the increasing demands of her regular customers, she needs to make her store fully stocked with daily use goods. For this, she applied for a loan of Rs 20,000 to purchase stocks of sugar and more packs of salt and beverages. She aspires to save money to send her children to school for their better and prosperous future.
