Aslam is a man having self-confidence. He led his own way through his life. He belongs to a village Chak Jhumra. He acquired stitching skills at his village & never got his due compensation due to poor economic conditions of his village. He decided to move to a nearby city Faisalabad. He stared working in a factory & at evening time does his own business.
He wanted to extend his business by purchasing more machines to stitch and develop separate place for stitching bags such as a small factory and a separate point of sale as well.
Due to lack of finances Aslam was facing tough market challenges. He decided to borrow money from his family to run his business but no one from his family or social circle was willing to support him despite of his offer to make them partner in his business.
He visited Mobilink Microfinance Bank Limited(MMBL) to apply for loan. Based on his skill set MMBL granted him loan of Rs.25, 000 with the help of which he purchased the material of bags. He got a good market response. He successfully repaid loan and was in a position to improve his financial health.
Then he reinvested his loan of Rs.40, 000 in business and acquired rental place for his business. After the completion of second cycle he got loan of Rs.50, 000 that he utilized to develop an outlet for his products at a commercial area and employed another worker for his business.
He was able to improve the living condition of his family and provide his children all the necessities and education.
