Rukhsana baji's husband makes a living selling cloth, and has been in this business for the last four years. Rukhsana baji is a housewife who prefers to do household work and take care of her family. She successfully repaid her first loan from Asasah (a microfinance institute in Pakistan). She is applying for this loan to buy more clothes for her husband's cloth selling business.

She is joined in her loan group by several members. Kosar baji wants a loan to buy materials for her business selling bangles. Rabia baji wants a loan to buy supplies for her grocery shop. Shazia baji wants a loan to buy material (such as beads, colored thread and sketches) for her embroidery business. Suraiya baji, Shama baji and Asmat baji each want a loan to buy more clothes to resell.

This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the members, each of whom will invest in her own business. The members mutually guarantee each other's loans. If one member does not repay, the other members are responsible.

In this group: Rukhsana, Kosar, Rabia, Shazia, Suraiya, Shama, Asmat
