Musarat's Group's story

Musarat baji is the wife of M. and the mother of four children: two sons and two daughters. She owns a two-room brick house and has been living in it for the last 40 years. She lives in a small city named Chichawatni, Pakistan. Her elder son has a grocery shop and the young one makes embroidered dresses. Her elder daughter is in 8th standard and the younger is in 5th standard. Her husband runs a grocery shop. Musarat baji successfully completed repaying two loans from Asasah (a microfinance institute in Pakistan). Now she is applying for a loan to buy groceries for her husband and her son's grocery stores.



She is joined in her loan group by several more members. Ghulam Fatima baji wants a loan to buy crockery to re-sell. Bashiran baji wants a loan to repair her family's auto-rickshaw (a local three-wheeled vehicle). Zubaida baji wants a loan to buy wooden baskets to re-sell. Sajida baji wants a loan to buy shoes for her shoe selling business. Mumtaz baji wants a loan to buy a lathe 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: Musarat, Ghulam Fatima, Bashiran, Zubaida, Sajida, Mumtaz
