Zaheen's story

Ms Zaheen is 27 years old and married. Her husband has been successfully running a small general store in her community for the last two years. The man shown in the photo is Zaheen’s husband. He offers various items of goods for everyday use. He has good communication skills and counts a good client list.

Zaheen is a mother of three children all of whom are school going. She is motivated to provide for family. For the improvement of her husband’s business, she requested a loan of Rs 20,000/- to buy a stock of rice, flour and packs of oil in large quantity to meet the increasing demand consistently. She wishes to spend part of the revenues for her children’s education and to increase her business capital.
