A loan of $1,150 helped a member buy iron in bulk.

Balqees' Group's story

My name is Balqees BibiI, the group leader. I am a widow from Lahore, the second largest city in Pakistan. I have five children. After my husband’s death, my sons undertook the responsibility to earn money for the family. They manufacture iron gates and therefore need a loan to buy iron in bulk.

The other women in my group would like a loan for the following uses; Shokat B. will buy wood , Zohra B. also needs to buy iron in bulk, Nusrat is borrowing money so her husband can buy a rickshaw and Kishwer B. would like to purchase a sewing machine.

I have known these women for many years and completely trust them. A small loan can bring big changes to our lives.

In this group: Balqees, Shokat, Zohra, Nusrat, Kishwer
