Farida's Group's story

Farida baji is the wife of M. A. B. and lives in a historical place named Yadgar in the city Lahore, Pakistan. She owes a two-room brick house and has been living in it for the last 35 years. She is the mother of four children: two sons and two daughters. Her sons work in a medical store as salesmen. Her elder daughter is in 8th standard. Her younger daughter is in 7th standard.



Farida baji’s husband is an electrician by profession. Farida baji is a housewife and prefers to do household work and take care of her family. She is applying for a loan to buy medicines because her elder son wants to open his own medical store.



She is joined in her loan group by several more members. Kosar baji and Bilquis baji each want a loan to buy garments to re-sell. Sabra baji wants a loan to buy spare parts for vehicles for her spare-parts shop. Nusrat baji wants a loan to buy goods (snacks, biscuits) for her canteen.



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: Farida, Kosar, Bilquis, Sabra, Nusrat
