Asia is living with her husband, 2 daughters and 3 sons in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.
Her husband has been making shoes since 1998. His practice is to take orders and provide services for making shoes. The contractors provide raw materials to her husband and her husband provides only services for making shoes. Time to time he has gotten lots of market experience, and he has made good relationships in the market. Now that he knows how to tackle the customers and about the market rates very well, he realized that he is not getting the proper reward for his services.
He decided to start his own business so that he could get maximum reward for his efforts. For this purpose Asia requested a loan so that her husband could buy raw materials and could start his shoe business.
Asia hopes that now her husband will be able to sell his hand made shoes and he will succeed to convince the clients. In this way his sale will increase, and his family will have a good chance for survival with better living standard.
