A loan of $1,200 helped a member buy another cow for the dairy business.


Bushra's Group's story

My name is Bushra B.. I am married and have five children. I live with my family in the small town of Kot Radha Kishan, which is about an hour and a half away from the nearest city. My husband is a daily wage laborer and I sell milk to make a living. I own two cows but now I would like to buy an additional cow, because my husband does not generate a steady source of income and I would like to increase the milk production of my business. I have many friends in my neighborhood and they all are the members of my loan group. All of us have taken two loans from Asasah, a microfinance institution and invested in our businesses. My group members are: Zainab B., who sells milk to her clients from nearby villages; Anum B. and her husband, who buy milk from various providers and sell it in a nearby city; Zohran B., whose husband operates a restaurant; and Mukhtar B., who also raises livestock and sells milk. They all are hardworking entrepreneurs and play an important role in bringing income to their families.

In this group: Bushra, Mukhtar, Anum, Zainab, Zohran
