Sobia's Group's story

Sobia is a 32-year-old woman living with her spouse and 2 children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She belongs to a poor family, as her whole family is fully dependent upon a single earning person and a single source of income as well. Her husband has owned a small general store in a nearby hometown for 12 years.

Her husband is facing a problem with his daily sales and is unable to fulfill the demands of his daily customers due to a shortage of stock. The causes of the shortage of those inventories are that Sobia herself uses all of her household necessities from her husband's general store, and because most of the customers like to buy commodities on a credit basis.

Sobia wants to fill the requirements of stock in her husband's general store, and that is why she requested a loan, so that her husband would be able to buy those inventories. Sobia hopes that this loan will bring positive changes to the general store so that she can manage her household expenses through earned income. She is very happy and glad after taking this loan, and she is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan.
