A loan of $1,000 helped a member buy bangles in bulk for the wedding season.


Rukhsana's Group's story

I am Rukhsana M. A. from Multan, Pakistan, a city famous for its handicrafts. I have six kids: four girls and two boys. I am borrowing for the first time from Asasah, a microfinance institute. I sell bangles and I am borrowing to expand my sales. Wedding season has just started and my sales will double, so please lend to me immediately so that I can respond to this increased demand. There are four other women in my loan group. Anweri is borrowing to fix her husband’s rickshaw. Kubra is a widow and needs this loan for her grocery store. Farzana K.'s husband supplies grocery items to various shops in the city. Nasreen’s son operates a ready-made garments business.

This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the group members, each of whom will invest in her own business.

In this group: Rukhsana, Anweri, Kubra, Farzana, Nasreen
