Nasreen is a 30-year-old housewife as well as a small business owner. She is a resident of a small locality in Hyderabad called Latifabad. She manages a household of six members, including herself, her husband and their four children. She has three sons and a daughter, aged between eight to six. Her husband is a marble grinding labourer who earns a monthly sum of a mere 9,000 rupees. Nasreen herself has a small bangle shaping and moulding business. She cuts and shapes traditional glass bangles on a flame. Her work is extremely taxing and pays absurdly less. She is hardly able to make about 6,000 rupees every month, on average. Nevertheless, she is obliged to work so hard to provide a suitable income for her children.
Despite their best efforts, Nasreen and her husband are barely able to earn over 15,000 rupees every month. Nasreen initially started off her business with the help of a loan from Akhuwat. In order to provide a better living to her family, she now wishes to improve her earnings. Currently her production is extremely low, and so are her revenues. She needs a loan to purchase a new and better machine for cutting and moulding bangles. She is hopeful that she will be able to increase her production and earn a better income. She aims to provide a better living standard to her children and wants them to receive quality education.
