Islamabad - Women stallholders at the H-9 Weekly Bazaar Saturday demanded to allot large size shops to them, as they were running their business in small stalls to earn livelihood for their families.

It is not possible to expand my business and earn more money for my family when I have this small stall in the bazaar.”

Zareena Khan, another stallholder said: “I am running my business with satisfaction as it is really a great experience for me to start my own business but the bazaar management should make policies separately for businessmen and businesswomen, keeping in view the problems being faced by businesswomen.”

Aima Khalid, a stallholder said: “I am contributing in running the affairs of my home as the salary of my husband is too meager.” She urged the authorities concerned to allot large shop in order to earn enough money for her family.
