She has one daughter, named Rakhshanda, who runs a beauty parlor. Her husband is a government servant. Sarwar baji works as a maid in several houses. She successfully repaid her first loan from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now she is applying for a second loan to buy materials (cosmetics, creams, machines, etc.) for her daughter's beauty salon.



She is joined in her loan group by a few more members. Anwar S. H. wants a loan to repair her auto-rickshaw (a local three-wheeled motorized vehicle). Salma A. M. wants a loan to buy construction materials (cement, sand, etc.). Tariza S. M. wants a loan to buy candies and sweets to resell.



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.
