A loan of $1,050 helped a member start her own business embroidering clothes.

Shamim's Group's story

"I am Shamim Akther. I am married and a mother of six: four daughters and two sons. One of my daughters is married while the others are above 13. I have been embroidering clothes for fifteen years. Earlier, I used to embroider on order from a middleman and earned little for my labor. Now, I and my daughter together want to start our own business of embroidering clothes.

There are several other women like me who are in need of loans. Basheeran B. buys and sells goats. Anweri B. wants a loan for her clothing business. Wazira B. will invest her loan in her shoe manufacturing business. Abida B. wants a loan for her embroidery business. Above all, these women are my friends and reside in my neighborhood."

In this group: Shamim, Basheeran, Anweri, Wazira, Abida
