Gulnaz's Group's story

Gulnaz A., the group leader, comes from Multan, a city famous for its shrines in Pakistan. She has lived all her life in this city. Guinaz was married seven years ago and is the mother of four: three daughters and one son. Two of her older children attend school and the others are not of school age yet. Gulnaz’s husband has a mobile phone Sims dealership. His monthly income ranges between $175 and $200.

Currently, Guinaz's family needs a loan to expand their business. Gulnaz has been joined in her loan group by five women: Rukhsana P. requires her share of the loan to expand her scarves business, Hanifa B. will invest her share in her family’s grocery store, Shahbaz S. sells oil, Sonia B. will buy a rickshaw, and Zahida F. sells cloth.

This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the group members, each of whom will invest in her own business. The members mutually guarantee one another's loans. If one member does not repay, the other members are responsible.

In this group: Gulnaz, Rukhsana, Hanifa, Shahbaz, Sonia, Zahida
