Rehana kosar baji is the wife of A. M. and a mother of one 10-year-old son, Husnain. She lives in a small city named Chichawatni, Pakistan. Her husband runs a cigarette shop. He buys cigarettes from markets and sells them in his community. He has been in this profession for the last 8 years. Rehana baji is a housewife and prefers to do household work. She successfully repaid her first loan from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now she is applying for a second loan to buy more cigarettes to expand her husband's business.
