Haleema's Group's story

Haleema B., 49, the wife of A. A., 50, lives in Arifwala, Pakistan, where she owns a two room brick house and is the mother of two children. Her husband has been operating a cycle-renting business for the last three years, and she is now seeking a loan for the business to enable him to increase his income and improve the financial condition of his house. She recently successfully completed her first loan from Asasah, a microfinance institution of Pakistan.


Haleema has been joined in her loan group by four other members: Zubaida B., who wants to buy wheat; Ghafooran B., who wants to buy fruits for her fruit business; Muniran B., who wants to buy items for her electric shop; and Razia B., who wants to expand her grocery shop.


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: Haleema, Zubaida, Ghafooran, Muniran, Razia
