Amina baji is a mother of six children: five sons and one daughter. All of her children are enrolled in a local school in her neighborhood. Amina baji’s husband has a food business. He runs a small hotel in his community and sells rice and chick peas. Amina baji is a housewife, and she also makes embroidered dresses to order. Amina baji successfully repaid her two loans from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now she is applying for a loan to buy material (rice and chick peas) for her husband’s food business.



She is joined in her loan group by a few more members. Sakina baji wants a loan to buy material (thread, cloth) for her embroidery business. Shamim baji and Razia baji each want a loan to buy thread to resell. Naseem baji wants a loan to buy a power loom machine.



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: Amina, Sakina, Shamim, Razia, Naseem
