She is the mother of four children: one son and three daughters. Her son and her elder daughter are in kindergarten. The others are too young for school.

She successfully repaid her three loans from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now she is applying for a loan to buy beams and rope for her husband's shuttering business.
