Abida Nazir Ahmad Group's story

Abida baji operates a sewing business. She sews clothes to pay off the school fees of her kids. She is a 42-year-old married lady and has been a citizen of Vehari, Pakistan, for the past 18 years. She got her education up to the 5th standard, but couldn’t continue her studies further due to the limited financial resources of her parents. Her husband's name is N. A.. He works at a factory on a monthly salary. She is the mother of three kids: two sons and one daughter. Her older son is a janitor. The others are enrolled in school and are getting an education.


Abida baji has successfully repaid two previous loans from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now she is applying for a loan to buy groceries because her son wants to run a grocery shop when he comes home from work.


Abida baji is the leader of this group of three women from her locality. Zubaida baji and Irshad baji both want a loan to buy bed sheets to sell. Rukhsana baji wants a loan to buy an auto-rickshaw (a local three-wheeled motor vehicle).


This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the group members, each of whom will invest in her own business. The members mutually guarantee one another's loans. If one member does not repay, the other members are responsible.

In this group: Abida , Zubaida , Irshad , Rukhsana
