Shehnaz's story

Shehnaz is a 46-year-old married woman. She has been successfully running a small general store in her community for the last 3 and a half years. She offers various goods for daily use. She has good communication skills and counts on a good client list. Her husband is a driver and earns insufficient income to support his family alone. That is why Shehnaz is working hard to contribute in the family income. She is a mother of seven children and is motivated to provide for her family. As she wants to increase her business, she requested a loan of 50,000 PKR to buy stock of rice, sugar and flour from the market at lower rates for resale. She then would be able to meet the increasing demand consistently. She is in her 6th loan cycle and has shown excellent repayment behavior. She wishes to utilize part of revenues to deal with personal expenses and to increase business capital.
