Parveen is a 40-year-old woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of four children. Now they are growing older and their needs are increasing as well.

Previously, her husband was driving an auto rickshaw that did not belong to him, so he had to pay a daily fare to the owner of the auto rickshaw.

He decided to buy his own rickshaw to increase his income and savings. Parveen has some savings, but they are insufficient to buy a new auto rickshaw. That is why she requested a loan of PKR 40,000 so that her husband could buy a new auto rickshaw.

She hopes that this loan can bring happiness and joy to her family’s life and she can easily meet the daily household expenses.

Parveen is very glad after taking this loan and assures us that she will payback the installments on time.
