A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy clothes to sell.

Parveen Akhtar Allah Ditta Group's story

Parveen Akhtar Baji is a widow who has resided in a city named Kasur, Pakistan, for the past 10 years. The city of Kasur is famous for its sweetmeats. Parveenbaji operates a clothes-sewing business because this is the only craft she knows. Through this work she is able to send her two sons to school.

She is applying for a loan to start a cloth-selling business because sewing clothes is very time-intensive work and requires lots of hard work.

She is the group leader of five other women from her locality:

- Sugran Baji wants a loan to buy clothes to sell.

- Zarina Baji wants a loan to buy shoes to sell.

- Riffat Parveen Baji wants a loan to buy chairs, a mirror, and scissors for her salon.

- Sugran Baji wants a loan to buy cosmetics to sell.

- Razia Begum Baji wants a loan to buy iron to sell.

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: Parveen Akhtar, Sugran, Zarina, Riffat Parveen, Sugran, Razia Begum
