Rajan's Group's story

Rajan baji is the wife of M. A. and lives in a small city named Chichawatni, Pakistan. She is the mother of five children: four sons and one daughter. All of her children are enrolled in a local school in her neighborhood.



Rajan baji is a housewife and prefers to do household work. She successfully repaid her first loan from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). She invested her share in her husband's business. Her husband made a cycle stand where people come to stand their cycles and he gives a token to them and charges a fee.



Presently her husband is doing nothing; because of some circumstances he failed to continue the business. Now Rajan baji is applying for a loan to start a grocery shop for her husband and to buy groceries she requires a loan.



She is joined in her loan group by a few more members. Razia baji wants a loan to buy food ingredients (cooking oil, rice, wheat) for her food business. Hafizan baji wants a loan to buy groceries for her grocery shop. Khalida baji and Saima baji each want a loan to buy shoes for their shoe-selling business.



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: Rajan, Razia, Hafizan, Khalida, Saima
