Shahzadi is a 34-year-old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of a son and planning to grow her family.

Her husband works on a lathe machine and produces the digging parts of tractors. He has been doing this business since 2004 and until this time, his business has been much settled. Due to continuously working, the tools of the lathe machine have gradually depreciated, and they need to be replaced with new tools. Her husband has already been spending his savings upon the maintenance of the lathe machine and does not have a sufficient amount to buy new tools.

Shahzadi requested a loan for her husband so that he could buy new tools for working on the lathe machine. Shahzadi hopes that this loan will prove productive for the business as well as for her family.
