Tahira's story

Ms Tahira is a 30-year-old married woman and a proud owner of a small grocery store in her community. When Tahira suggested the idea of a self-owned business to her husband, he rejected it by saying that she lacks the knowledge and ability to do anything independently. Adamant on proving him wrong, Tahira borrowed money from her brother and injected it into a newly-formed grocery store. Today she is famous in her community for running a store that provides perishables to many households. She has five children, and three are currently attending school. Her current business cash flows do not allow her to enroll her remaining two children in school. Tahira now wishes to increase the amount of inventory in her store by purchasing more packs of beverages, oil, and milk. She has requested a loan worth PKR 30,000. This will enable her to cater to her customers efficiently without delay, which will ultimately help in generating more cash at home.
