Khursheed is a 38-year-old married woman. Her husband is a driver, and his income is not enough to meet their household expenditures. So, Khursheed started a general store five years ago to support her family. Her husband also assists her by purchasing stock of goods from the market, as he has maintained many contacts for years.

Khursheed is a mother of five children and is motivated to provide her family with good-quality food, clothing and health. She wants to grow her business, so she requested a loan of PKR 30,000 to buy packs of sugar, oil and grains to meet the increasing demand at her store. She is expecting a boost in her earnings and dreams of expanding her business in the future.
