My name is Zubaida. I live in a Village called Chawinda near Tehsil Samundri, District Faisalabad. My husband is a farmer. I have 5 children and all of them go to school. I had a small convenience shop in the village but due to lack of grocery stuff inside, the profit margin was quite low and it was becoming hard for me to run the shop. I came to know about AWARD and the loan scheme they introduced in our area. I became the member of the women group and I got the loan of Rs. 15000/-.With that amount I increased the grocery items in the shop. Now I save Nearly Rs.350 to 400 per day. I manage most of the expenditures of my house and also pay my children school fee as well. With this saving I have increased the range of the grocery items further. I want to thank AWARD Pakistan for the role they played in developing my life.
