Zahida is age 36 and lives with her two children and husband in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband has been selling fruits from his shop for many years. He sells seasonal fresh fruits in his hometown. Due to the fruit’s freshness, he has attained a regular list of customers and makes enough to contribute to the family income. Due to his reputation, the demand for fruits has increased and by noon, his stock comes to an end. He wants to increase his stock on a daily basis so he can generate additional income to support his family in a better way.

Zahida feels proud of her husband and appreciates his efforts for his family. She is taking a loan for her husband to buy fruits in larger quantities and an equilibrium scale to weigh the fruit.
