Razia Yaqoob Masih Group's story

My name is Razia and I have been a citizen of the city of Borewala, Pakistan for the last 15 years. Borewala city is famous for its shrines. I have involved myself in the clothes embroidering business. I learnt this art from my mother and now this art is rewarding me with income. I save my money for rainy days. My husband, Y. M., drives a tractor to deliver crops from one place to another. I’m applying for a loan to pay off the remaining installments on my husband’s tractor so that he gets the whole income without paying the installments.

I’m the group leader of four other women from my locality. Sakina baji wants a loan to buy seasonal fruits and vegetables to sell. Sharifan baji wants a loan to buy leather to sell. Hamidan and Suraiya baji each want a loan to buy a donkey cart.

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: Razia , Sakina , Sharifan , Hamidan , Suraiya
