Nasreen is a 28-year-old married woman from Lahore, Pakistan. She lives in a tiny house with her husband and four children.

Her husband had been doing job in a clothing firm with low income, which was not enough to cover the family's needs, so he opened a small restaurant in the city three years ago. It is a good business and earns enough money for his family, but he would like to improve it by expanding the space and buying more tables, chairs and cooking oil.

Nasreen took a loan from BRAC Pakistan to accomplish the improvements. Using this loan, her husband will be able to develop his business so his income will be increased.
