A loan of $1,075 helped a member to buy a new donkey cart for her husband's business.


Shamim Muhammad Arif Group's story

My name is Shamim and I have been a citizen of a mid-sized city named Raiwind, Pakistan, for the past ten years. I run an animal-raising business. I have two goats and one buffalo at my home and I take care of them. To earn income, I’ll sell the goats to the animal market when they become older. I also get milk from the buffalo and sell it to the milk shop.

My husband’s name is M. A. and he drives a donkey cart. He uses this cart to deliver different items (e.g. fruits and vegetables and construction supplies) from one place to another. I’m applying for a loan to buy a new donkey cart because the old cart has become rough and rotted in several areas.

I’m the group leader of seven other women from my locality:

Naseem baji wants a loan to buy material (colored thread, beads and clothes) for her decorative embroidery business.

Khursheed baji and Naseem baji each want a loan to buy groceries for their grocery shops.

Safia baji and Guddu baji each want a loan to buy seasonal vegetables to sell.

Razia baji and Nazia baji each want a loan to buy a donkey cart for loading.

In this group: Shamim, Naseem , Khursheed , Naseem , Safia , Guddu , Razia , Nazia
