A loan of $1,200 helped a member buy a stock of items for betel nut shop.

Balqees' Group's story

I am Balqees J., and I belong to the Christian community of Chichawatni, a small town in Pakistan. I am married and a mother of two sons. My elder son studies in grade two and my younger son is in kindergarten. My husband operates a betel nut shop in a nearby market. He needs to buy a few items for his shop and does not possess enough money to purchase them. Kindly give us a loan for a twelve-month period. I am borrowing in a group of few other women: Shahnaz G. wants to expand her pharmacy. Naseem S.’s husband wants to start a bicycle rental store. Nabeela B. operates a grocery store within her house. Basheeran B. is also borrowing for her family’s business.

All of us reside very close together and are mutually responsible for this loan. If one does not repay, the others will pay for her.

In this group: Balqees, Shahnaz, Naseem, Nabeela, Basheeran
