A loan of $1,225 helped a member buy a rickshaw and other supplies for various businesses.


Shamim's Group's story

My name is Shamim H. and I was born in the small town of Pakpattan but now live in Borewala, Pakistan with my family. I need a loan to buy my son a rickshaw. My husband is a rickshaw driver and has trained our boy in this trade. Therefore, I feel that my son will do well with a rickshaw of his own.


I am the leader of a group that includes four other women. We are all committed to eradicate poverty in our community. Noor B. wants a loan for her son’s cotton-trading business. Hanifa B. needs a loan so her son can supply flour to various shops in our city. Amna B.’s husband runs a canteen and wants to buy furniture for it. Sabra B. will use her portion of the loan to start a small shoe-making business.

In this group: Shamim, Noor, Hanifa, Amna, Sabra
