A loan of $1,150 helped a member to buy fruits.

Bushra's Group's story

Bushra baji, the wife of A. M., lives in the small city of Chichawatni, Pakistan where she is the mother of five children: four sons and one daughter, all enrolled in a local school. This housewife successfully completed her first loan from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan) whereby she purchased an auto-rickshaw for her husband; her brother-in-law is now operating the rickshaw while her husband works as a security guard. Bushra baji is requesting a loan to start a new fruit-selling business, which her husband will operate.

She is joined in this group loan by four other members: Sakina baji requests a loan to buy goats and sheep to resell; Hanifan baji and Kalsoom baji each request a loan to buy a donkey cart; Bashiran baji requests a loan to buy some groceries for 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: Bushra, Sakina, Hanifan, Kalsoom, Bashiran
