Tahira's Group's story

Tahira Baji is the wife of M. T. and lives in a small area named Riwind of Kasur, Pakistan. It is a half hour from Kasur. Riwind is an area full of fruits and vegetable markets. Tahira Baji owes a two-room brick house and has been living in it for the last eight years. She is the mother of two daughters. Her elder daughter is 4 years old and her younger daughter is 2 years old. Tahira Baji's husband has a scrap business where he sells particularly iron. He has been in this business for the last 8 years. Tahira Baji is a housewife and prefers to do household work and take care of her family. She successfully repaid her two loans from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now she is applying for a loan to buy more iron for her husband's scrap business.

She is joined in her loan group by a few more members. Tahira Baji wants a loan to buy woods to resell. Shahnaz Baji wants a loan to buy groceries for her grocery shop. Razia Baji wants a loan to buy milk 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.

In this group: Tahira, Tahira, Shahnaz, Razia
