    Success Stories
    Name: Zahida Parveen
    R/O: Chak Gillan
    On Friday, I had an opportunity of meeting a lady named Zahida Parveen, a practical picture of above saying of George Bernard Shaw. At the age of fifty with her wrinkled hands and weakening physical strength she was busy in handling customers when I entered in her shop. In the time we spent together her conversation shows her remarkable level of motivation and a brighter hope of future for her family. Zahida Parveen, a mother of seven children and a wife of heart patient, lives in a village called Chakgillan. Due to increasing home expenditures and less income available to meet the expanding needs she planned to set up a general store in 2002. The first priority was arrangement of finance to give reality to her idea. Lengthy documentation procedures and paying cost of finance as interest were the barriers for obtaining loan from bank. But social care responsibility assumed by the TALON Fair Trade Society provided her an opportunity to get interest free loan Rs.20, 000 from the company which has to be paid back on monthly basis.Before opening the shop she was facing lot of problem to strive for better living but after getting the loan she established her own business and gradually her life became well as a result of continuous stream of earning and as the journey of life and business go on she now earns Rs. 300 to Rs. 400 per day. Thankful to the Talon Fair Trade, Sialkot, she is satisfied with her life and spending a happy days with her family. Being a responsible corporate unit Talon Fair-Trade micro finance scheme aims at improving the lives of poor families by offering them an access to basic financial assistance of interest free loan. Procedure of getting loan is very simple as borrowers do not have to offer any collateral or security to get loan. Representative from Talon Fair Trade Society go to their stitching centers and after analyzing the grounds of loan The micro-credit facility has enabled the poor families to opt the option of dignified way of earning.
