Muhammad Ijaz is 23 and is the eldest amongst his seven siblings; two brothers and three sisters. He is a resident of Nusrat Colony, Sukkur. His father is a vendor and sells fruit chaat in his locality. The earnings he generated from his work were reasonably insufficient for a household of seven.
Ijaz then made up his mind to help his father in earning for his family. For this purpose, he enlisted the help of Akhuwat’s interest free loans. With the help of his firs loan he purchased a fruit cart and started a small business. After earning sizable profits, he decided to open a proper fruit shop. He is now running own fruit shop. He manages to earn an income of PKR 16,000. Ijaz needs some investment in his business so he could make his shop better and also to introduce more variety in fresh fruits. For this he has requested for a loan of worth PKR 30,000. He will renovate shop and purchase more stock of fruits.
