Naveela's story

Naveela is a 46-year-old married lady and a mother of three children. She has run a small general store in her community for many years along with her husband (the man shown in the picture). They offer a variety of grocery items at a reasonable price and have retained many customers who regularly shop at their store. They make enough money to provide for their family. To make her store fully stocked, Naveela has requested a loan of PKR 35,000, which she will use to buy stock of rice, sugar and flour from the market at lower rates. In this way, she will be able to meet the increasing demands of customers consistently. Naveela dreams of expanding her business and plans to utilize part of her revenues to increase her business capital.
