Nusrat Almas M. Irshad Group's story

Nusrat Almas baji is a 39-year-old married lady. Her husband is M. I. and he has a food production and selling business. He has 20 years' experience in this business. She lives in a city called Borewala, Pakistan. She is the mother of four kids: two sons and two daughters. All of her children are getting an education from a school which is located near their house.

Nusrat baji helps her husband prepare Punjabi food for sale. She is a very responsible lady. She provides Punjabi food on time to his hotel. Now Mr. I. has decided to start driving an auto-rickshaw (a local three-wheeled motor vehicle) since Nusrat baji is able to handle his food business very well. She is applying for a loan to buy an auto-rickshaw (a local three-wheeled motor vehicle) for her husband to use.

Nusrat baji is the group leader for some more women from her locality. Zahida Parveen baji wants a loan to buy bicycles to re-sell. Salma baji wants a loan to buy clothes to re-sell.
