Her husband is a daily wage labor. Khursheed 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 loan to buy material (cooking oil, utensils) to expand her son's food business. She is joined in her loan group by a few more members. G.
