Najma's Group's story

Najma baji is a wife of N. A. and lives in a small city named Kasur, Pakistan. She has been living in this city with her family for the last 22 years. Her house is based in one room where she and two more family members live. Najma baji is a housewife but she makes thread and sells it in market to earn profit. Her husband has an electronics shop. Najma baji has one son, and he is 16 years old. She successfully completed her two loans from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now she is applying for a loan to buy electronic supplies (washing machines, stoves) to expand her husband’s business.

She is joined in her loan group by a few more members. Allah Rakhi baji and Sugran baji each want a loan to buy thread to resell. Nasreen baji wants a loan to buy embroidery material (thread, cloth, and needles).

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: Najma, Allah Rakhi, Nasreen, Sugran
