Yasmeen's Group's story

Yasmeen baji, the wife of F. H., has lived in Chichawatni, Pakistan for the last 20 years. She owns a four room brick house and is the mother of five children: two sons and three daughters. Her sons finished their education at the 10th standard (grade) while her daughters are enrolled in a local school in her neighborhood. She recently successfully completed her first loan from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan) and now is applying for a loan to buy more shoes to resell in her husband’s shoe shop.

She is joined in her loan group by four other members: Anwar baji wants to buy garments to resell locally; Rashda baji seeks a loan for her grocery shop; Nadia baji wants a loan for her stove to make and sell nan (bread), while Majeedan baji wishes to buy oil to cook her Punjabi food (samosas, pakodas, etc.), which she then sells.

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 guarantee one another's loans, so if one member does not repay, the other members are responsible.

In this group: Yasmeen, Anwar, Rashda, Nadia, Majeedan
