A loan of $1,475 helped a member to buy cloth for a cloth-dying business.

Shamim's Group's story

Shamim A., a mother of three, leads a group of five entrepreneurial women in the small city of Chichawatni, Pakistan. They wish to use a $1,475 loan to invest in their families' businesses, so they can build a better life for themselves and their children. Shamim's husband is retired, and her son helps support the family. He's worked by dying cloth since elementary school, and Shamim will use the money to purchase more supplies for his business. Meanwhile, Hanifa will put her share to purchasing a donkey and cart so she can sell fruit, while Sardarn will invest her loan in her family's grocery store. Shakila hopes to buy her son a rickshaw, while Sharifan will purchase materials for her son's welding shop.

In this group: Shamim, Hanifa, Sardaran, Sharifan, Shakila
