Abdul Rashid
Mr. Abdul Rashid is 51 years old. He runs a shop that sells bags in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. This is the only source of income for his family. He is a responsible father of three children, all of whom attend school. His wife is a responsible housewife. Mr Abdul Rashid is an honest and hardworking person. He sells various kinds of school bags in his shop.
